“Together, this drummer-less quartet floats differing pulses, favoring interactions such as the conversation between Morris and Flaten on “Pent,” and Wooley’s fluttering notes against bowed bass on “Knicks.” The startling speed of “Giants” represents a heart-pounding four minutes of spontaneous felicity, while Wooley and Flaten open “As If” by setting the table for the quartet’s harmonies. McPhee and Morris slide inside this and other pieces, working each track and maintaining the originator’s framework.” -Mark Corroto, All About Jazz
