Press for Jim Campilongo:
Wiles and chops make the guitarist what he is: an engaging improviser whose interest in entertainment is equal to his interest in art. His supple moves can keep an audience enthralled - meaning their asses wiggle and their minds jiggle. Few connect the dots between jazz and twang like this guy." - Jim Macnie, The Village Voice
Press for Club d'Elf:
All-stars they are: Club d'Elf have to be one of the most fluent polyglot musical aggregations on the planet: straight-ahead and avant-garde jazz, Indian, African, Moroccan, blues, funk (always funk), pop." - Jon Garelick, The Boston Phoenix
Press for Knucklebean:
Local big band Knucklebean combines avant-garde skronk with rubbery funk and soul-jazz grooves." - Time Out New York
A band called Knucklebean" - The New York Times
Press for the last This Is Our Music event:
We're psyched and inspired to see new experimental series popping up all over the place recently. Tonight you can welcome yet another, Galapagos's This Is Our Music, which debuts with a great lineup of local avant-jazz luminaries, including saxists Jessica Lurie and Sabir Mateen, and the large ensembles Knucklebean and Burnt Sugar." --Time Out New York
