All About Jazz
While all of these diverse personalities come together in fine fashion, it’s Garrett’s saxophone that garners the most attention. He can be sunny and playful, brash and bold or wistful and pensive , but he always displays a melodic bent in his playing, regardless of the mood. […]

PopMatters
The sound of this band is generous. The Venezuelan pianist Benito Gonzalez is a maximalist, fusing plenty of world rhythms with his massive post-bop jazz chops, sounding occasionally like Herbie Hancock and more often like McCoy Tyner, but always like a young monster. […]

The Guardian
Seeds from the Underground does have an identity of its own – Garrett’s lyrical Japanese and Korean enthusiasms are downplayed, every soulfully postboppish theme is repeated for long enough that the audience can’t forget itand there’s more soul/world-music vocal content. […]
