I really appreciate that with such a large group of musicians the overall sound and experience of listening is really spacious, never cluttered. The lovely recording helps that a lot, and of course the compositional aspects that make it breathe are superb- it gets more and more fun as I listen again and again. Jasper Skydecker

Peter Evans performance here is certainly a step beyond what has come before. At times harsh and abrasive, yet always lyrical. Ken Vandermarks solo recordings on Site Specific come to mind in that the environment helps to shape the overall tone of the compositions.
Edge of your seat performance that will leave you shaking your head. tlomiento
