...we need what this music brings us – an infusion of LIFE & the ability to see/hear things a bit differently through the same set of ears in the same galaxy but with a slightly warped astronomy – mixed with a bit of astrology & star plotting – yes new stars form every day & older stars (Allen now well over 80) burn brighter than ever before...
...He wears a t-shirt that says Dream Team & all I can think of at that moment is  > Yes that’s it. That’s what this trio is a Dream Team. A true Dream Team traveling their own ripple-odious Space Way through breath & pitch using their own brand of perspective to box their way out of the box we call Music…  
...Yet there is a logic to night, it being the only path that allows us to view those stars   nakedly & these musicians have surely taken us closer toward that path.
Steve Dalachinsky, excerpt from the liner notes
