“A JAZZ POWER TRIO FOR THE NEW CENTURY.” – NPR’s Fresh Air
“a dazzling, intrepid sort of new jazz that’s as deeply interactive as anything you’re likely to hear this year… an unwavering unity of sonic purpose and attack… there is nothing else out there that sounds like it… In its risk-taking, fragility, and fearlessness, it’s also very thrilling.” – All About Jazz
“dazzling dialogues that aim equally for listeners’ feet and minds. Together, they create intensely rhythmic music that combines jazz ingenuity, rock velocity and World Music savvy. Their visceral compositions constantly blur the lines between improvised flights of fancy and expertly calibrated arrangements… The result is a heady, punchy outing that could serve as a template for daring, forward-looking musicians everywhere.” – San Diego Union-Tribune
“Fieldwork is the sound of jazz exploding and raining down shards of glass upon our heads.” – Prefix Magazine
