Fanfare (Sept/Oct 2014)

"Now, this I like! A disc of slightly wacky, “out there” music, excellently played and well recorded. This music is primarily built around quick, syncopated passages played by the various reeds here, all of whom have excellent tones and techniques, but more importantly, it’s enjoyable music, well written, and played in an enjoyable manner.”

“This is a fascinating disc.”

“…you’ll really appreciate Loeffert’s virtuosity here.  It’s not merely excellent, but astounding.”
