All About Jazz
But each tune is fascinating how Sonny and Cherry can just totally deconstruct each number in uncanny ways. So, know that it’s night and day to ‘Sonny Meets Hawk’ which just kinda stays within “swing” for the most part. This disc is all over the place, but in my opinion, in a good way. […]

Los Angeles Times
On a remarkable, 25-minute version of his own classic tune, “Oleo,” and two other numbers, Rollins makes his case for the range of his skills, dipping in and out of saxophone multi-phonics and assorted avant-garde techniques. […]

But do yourself a favor, when you play the 25 minute version of “Oleo”, make sure there are empathetic souls in your household (or car) if you cannot be by yourselfand turn up the volume. It will knock you out. […]
