DownBeat Critics Poll Results: Jazz Album: Sam Rivers/Dave Holland/Barry Altschul Reunion: Live in New York #3 Record Label: Pi Recordings #3

“Vibration is essence for the alto saxophonist and composer Steve Coleman, whose nearly 30-year output as a leader suggests one long investigation… This is tangled funk with a higher calling, furious mainly in its focus.”, Nate Chinen New York Times

4 Star HotBox Review Jonathan Finlayson’s Moment & the Message by John Corbett, DownBeat

“Finlayson… straddles the mathematical and the colloquial so well on this debut that he seems bound for the stature of Coleman, Lehman and Tim Berne, and even of the great Henry Threadgill before them. Finlayson’s clean-pitched agility and fresh phrasing steer the set, but innovative new guitarist Miles Okazaki, young Cuban pianist-of-the-moment David Virellesand some memorable compositions make it already a landmark among 2013’s releases.” 4 Stars, John Fordham, The Guardian UK
