“ Although there is no bassist present, this is a perfect triangular trio, completely connected on all levels....Mr. Esposito also balances things just right…. pulls off one astonishing solo after the other…. What makes this disc so special is the way the trio plays together as one tight force of nature. There is strong balance between the freer/more spiritual forces and the connected undertow of currents that runs through everything that is going on….Most enchanting. Everything about this disc rings true, consistently inventive and spiritually uplifting. You can’t do much better than that.”
- Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery
