Archie Shepp:
This album is another triumph performed by some of the best musicians on the scene today

Dusty Groove America, Inc.:
One of the most fully-formed records we've heard from Odean Pope in years -- a beautiful set that's filled with really bold, soulful horn charts -- really deepening the sound, and helping Odean soar even more than usual!
