Glenn Astarita
All About Jazz, August 1999

"New York City based 'Flipside' is a multinational quartet featuring New Zealanders Matt Penman (bass), Greg Tuohey (guitar), Irish drummer Darren Beckett and French saxophonist Jerome Sabbagh. 'Flipside' is about strong grooves, sensitive group interplay and adequate breathing room for the soloists in Penman's composition, 'The Magic Beans'...Part of Flipside's magic lies within compositions constructed around memorable hooks and themes, which effectively counter the imaginative soloing and prevailing sense of space. A surprisingly mature debut effort featuring solid, fertile material and superb craftsmanship."

The Jazz Report, July 1999

"The music is free-flowing, melodic, rhythmic and expressive."
