“ ….a rolling powerhouse of frenetic hard bop in the best tradition of Art Blakey’s perennial Jazz Messengers...swings like mad and bubbles over with lively, effervescent chops to spare. And even better, instead of just cloning the achievements of the past, they can put their own twisty little spins on it...” -- Gene Santoro PULSE! 1987
