What the critics are saying about Caine's debut release, Backstabber's Ball:
One of the best records that has come out this year." -- Linda Yohn, WEMU
Backstabber's Ball is a great example of how jazz is (and should be) growing and advancing at this time in its history. This is some of the best of the best."
-- Roman St. James, Pop Matters
Bassist Neal Caine proves himself a thoughtful leader, inventive composer and phenomenal player on his debut release, Backstabber's Ball....The band is right, the material is right and the CD is one definitely worth adding to your collection."
-- Dave Miele, Jazz Improv Magazine
The quiet atmosphere, ghostly harmonizing of the horns, and Neal Caine's knack for writing wistful melodies that sound like half-remembered standards, give his music a misterioso atmosphere too rare in jazz."
-- Kevin Whitehead/National Public Radio (NPR) All Things Considered, July 4, 2004
