Review of Barbara Sfraga & Center Search Quest'slive performance at Satalla: http://www.jazzreview.com/article/review-4147.html

Her [Sfraga's] vocal work is consistantly inventive and sure, and she demonstrates a distinctive feel for how to unlock a song in a new way." -- BILLBOARD (CRITIC'S CHOICE)

...Chris Sullivan and Michael Thompson are masters of feel, maestros of the deep earthen groove... (fans of Parker and Drake will surely not be disappointed)." -- SIGNAL TO NOISE Magazine

Mala Waldron's playing exhibits a fascinating combination of tension and relaxation that sustains the mood of each composition. -- Shariff Abdur-Salaam, WKCR-FM

New York City-based multi-reedman/composer Allen Won is an artist who fluently segues between the classical and jazz idioms...Won is outwardly comfortable withion a variety of modes. He often soars skyward with passion and fire, yet can spin a memorable melody into an improvisational launching pad... (A top pick for 2005...) --JazzReview.com (on Won's “The Jewel in the Lotus")

There's brazenness to Sfraga that's as arresting as it is invigorating. Never content with traditional readings or staid arrangements, she is a master of bold interpretation. -- Jazz Times

...the superb bassist Chris Sullivan and master drummer/percussionist Michael Thompson brings the nuance of each piece that much more brightly to the fore..." -- Jazzreview.com
