"There are few bigger-name jazz artists making music as complete as LAJQ's and there's nobody more involving."
"Collectively they are integrated, interactive whole, that has played together for years and shares a language and a vision. They believe that musical epiphanies can best be discovered in subdued atmospheres in which slight dynamic shifts take on meaning, and where nuances have impact."
Stereophile **** ( four stars review)
"The third album by this band of L.A. regulars who've collectively played with Joe Lovano, Bobby Bradford and Billy Childs is refreshing and invigorating."
Down Beat Magazine
"From the first note, you're in dreamland, swept, downstream by the warm beauty and unforced intelligence of the members' compositions... If it's possible to get rich by playing only for people who like good music, these guys can go to the bank."
"The LAJQ is impressive in so many ways that it's hard to know where to begin. Most obvious is its cohesiveness. In terms of dynamics, it grows out of restraint, which is to say ultimately out of silence, and one feels silence as a ground or backdrop in everything the group plays. If a single phrase could characterize this group's music, it would be "thinking feeling" or "felt-thought."
