…a unique experience. To be humane takes significant courage. This band leads by example with music as their vehicle. © 2015 The New York City Jazz Record

Watching artists watching themselves in the act of creation is a rare treat. Brian Blade plays with total freedom, actively participating with a steady stream of input that’s never indulgent. On an extended “Starry Night,” he eases in with subtlety and mystery before some kind of pulse eventually takes root; the piece culminates with a full-kit meter-less frenzy of cymbal bombs and jittery rolls. Adventurous stuff, and an absorbing look under the hood of a pure musical machine. © 2015 Modern Drummer



Jeff Tamarkin
JazzTimes, February 2015

The concert is outstanding…a shining example of one of jazz’s most consistently brilliant outfits at its creative peak. © 2015 JazzTimes
