The feel here is of  an exquisite piece of chamber-jazz just sufficiently dirtied to keep it lively. Crispell, who’s done so much of this kind of playing with Anthony Braxton, is perfect for the job, and Ochs is equally capable.—   Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD, sixth edition



There are undoubtedly some terrific  moments, but the whole project is too self-consciously eclectic and “downtown” to allow the players to lose themselves in the music for sustained periods. In music, as in life, nirvana requires forgetting oneself. Here, both the writing and the playing seem at certain times to fall into the refrain “Remember Me!…Me! and at others to reverberate loudly with a “What should I be doing now?” vibe. — Walter Horn,   Cadence Magazine
