Some recent album reviews:

excerpt from All about Jazz

"The Odd Trio's second release is a delightful and stimulating musical collage with intelligently constructed improvisations that remain accessible. The immense talent of the individual musicians has imbued the disc with a clever originality that gives it a wide appeal."

excerpt from Critical Jazz

"Bottom line is the release works on more levels than I have space to print. Organic, eclectic yet somehow never pushing themselves or the listener over the avaunt gard cliff. This trio works with the precision and timing of a group with twice their experience, toss in the fun factor and variety of sonic flavor and we have a winner! A release you will come back to time and again as the disc is one of those that gives up just a little more information with each subsequent spin.
A kaleidoscope of texture and flavor and yes!"

excerpt from Improvijazzation Nation-

"What’s truly neat (aside from the fact that they’re from th’ deep south – Athens, GA) is that their music is painted on a much broader palette than free-form…. scope out the blues-root/power drum combo on “Whiskey”, where you’ll get a true feel for what it feels to wake up in th’ mornin’ with a “head on”, ready to ride that HARLEY! I enjoyed this CD & give it a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for listeners who relish the rambunctious! “EQ” (energy quotient) rating is 4.97."

excerpt from Audiophile Auditions

"Birth of the Minotaur makes for an off-center, irregular and unpredictable experience but one well worth exploring. When was the last time Greek goddesses, a SF hero and a bottle of alcohol were rounded up and thrown into a musical mix?"
