"What makes these 14 duos and trios so much fun is their variety. Nearly every track is a gem, as the ten musicians who join percussionist Gino Robair create unique sound palettes. The combinations of players shift, with the only constant being Robair. The three cuts with computer whiz Tim Perkis (also with saxophonist John Butcher added on one) are revelatory, but the duos with LaDonna Smith (on violin and viola), the Splatter Trio, saxophonists Oluyemi Thomas and Dan Plonsey, violinist Carla Kihlstedt, and bassist Matthew Sperry are also filled with not-to-be-missed moments. As expected, some of the groupings work better than others, but the quality of the performers leads to results that are at once unanticipated and timeless. Robair never takes the back seat, but his self-effacing contributions help to make this one the success that it is."-Steve Loewy, Allmusic.com
