“ … lyrical, melodic, musical, & tasteful. Every note has its meaning. Distance makes a statement - a beautiful one.”
Jeff Waggoner - contributing writer, Jazz Times
"... deceptively accessible, flavored with rhythm and melody that’s fun and funky and sure to lift your spirits. Distance stays with you."
"The group is extremely tight and its music is like nothing else. Sounding at various turns exuberant, soaring, grooving, or longing, it leaves you in suspense from one track to the next about what is going to happen. Even within a track, the music is never predictable, and many times the band's total sound can sweep you away."
