Sammy Stein, writing for The Free Jazz Collective:

The CDs show how musicians who listen and want to explore can develop huge sounds – or small, delicate intricacies depending on what takes the moment. Both CDs have a dialect of their own but they are linked by that universal language – the desire to explore, challenge and make good free flowing music with spontaneity and intrigue. There is a sense of a tunnel into which the sounds are poured and what emerges the other end could be anything – or everything.
