"This exciting and surprising album was recorded live in March, 2010 at Roulette in New York City. Featuring William Hooker on drums, the band consists of Adam Lane on bass, Dave Ross on guitar, Chris DiMeglio on trumpet and Sanga on percussion. The music is quite exciting and powerful with a great deal of rhythmic control, especially from the powerful drum and percussion team. The musicians run together in a vortex of seething power broken only by a member stepping outside of the maelstrom for a solo or for Hooker's stream of consciousness poetry. Drums, bass and percussion come together like waves of greater or lesser density, moving the music inexorably forward. The interesting front line of guitar and trumpet works really well together, alternately powerful and svelte. The individual instruments have a range of internal air space allowing Lane's bass to be one of the prime movers in the music's forward motion, creating a big, spatially open sound."-Tim Niland, Music and More
