nu jazz, innovant and improvised musics
"We listened to your wonderful version of "Escalator Over The Hill" last night and were just as amazed and delighted as we were when we saw you perform it live in Nevers. It's the perfect combination of old and new, control and abandon, realism and abstraction (I could go on all day). Paul Haines would have loved it. The playing and singing, as well as the arranging, are excellent. The Collective is a great band. Give everyone our complements. I hope you guys can stay together and make more beautiful music...."
