Review of "Evolve" from Midwest Record
SHAREL CASSITY & Elektra/Evolve:
"And the title says it all. The eclectic mix of jazzbos looking to stretch that show up keep this from being a downtown, busman's holiday. Staying true to it's roots in downtown and loft jazz, this tight, angular and muscular jazz outing merges echoes of the past and future into a glorious present that all can be proud of. Keeping it's cutting edge in tact, this charts the future in fine form. A winner throughout."
