"ODDYSSEY QUARTET/We Are All Branches of the Same Tree: If sailing way to the left isn't normally part of your listening wheelhouse, trying to stick it in your ear can be a tricky endeavor as the margins aren't all the clear to the novice. That's where chops and pedigrees come into play. When you've got cats that worked with Albert Ayler and Sam Rivers on board, it's not like you are entering at your own risk. You don't even have to be put off by statements like this is improv music by cats that have rarely played together. Church basement overhang? You bet. Scary pots and pans music? Not at all. It doesn't even feel like arts council music even if it's way out there. A sure bet for when you want something cohesive that's really out of the ordinary." Chris Spector/Midwest Record

 

"I am having a delightful and mystical experience with this music."
"This is music for the adventuresome ear, for the intellectually inquisitive, for the creatively hungry. This trio has something too, which few bands can really claim: a wholly unique and original approach, with completely unique ideas from top to bottom."
-Phil Traynor www.thebaybuzz.org/Reviews.html

"The music is innovative and more than a bit quirky. In other words, a hell of lot of fun for jazz fans who like rock or rock fans who like some jazz sprinkled into the mix. Or just for anybody who is into music that moves above the norm... A bit deranged but totally interesting."
Bruce Von Stiers

"...they reach deep into their unified creativity, interacting in a way that lifts the music up and raises the level of audience engagement at the same time."
