JazzTimes
In some ways, Howard Levy’s unique musicianship and creativity have provided a real boost for his old comrades. The compositions are all quite bold, showcasing everyone’s versatility and highlighting the collective power of the band. […]

All About Jazz
The writing hasn’t been this strong since, well, the last time Levy was in the bandand because Fleck remains the group’s primary composer (though everyone contributes), it becomes clear that it’s always been as much about who he is writing for as what he is writing. […]

George Graham
I’ll definitely give this CD grade “A” for sound quality. Fleck always has high standards in how his music is captured on recordand this CD is no exception. The instrumentation is recorded with very good clarity and minimal studio effects. The dynamic range is also quite commendable, giving the percussion a nice impactand not trying to compete in the loudness wars. […]
