"Sided Silver Solid is keyboardist/composer Carl Maguire's Firehouse 12 debut and the second release from his longstanding band, Floriculture, which has performed his sophisticated compositions around New York since 2001. It is also the first recording to feature the band's expanded line-up featuring new music violist Stephanie Griffin and veteran multi-instrumentalist Oscar Noriega. Critics called the band's previous release, Floriculture (Between the Lines), "one of the true modern jazz surprises of 2006" (Glenn Astarita, ejazznews.com) and "as exciting a debut release as any in the last few years" (The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings, Eighth Edition). "Floriculture most definitely exudes the mark of an extremely confident composer in Carl Maguire, who has a deep feel for the freedom that jazz allows," wrote AllAboutJazz.com's Budd Koppman. "His bandmates obviously enjoy bringing his music to life, and I thoroughly enjoyed taking the trip with them."-Firehouse 12
