Press Quotes -In Transit
"......the magic comes not from bebop complexity (though the musicians are clearly bebop adepts as well) but from the soft melding of musical traditions from two continents, adding up to one of the more subtly remarkable accomplishments in jazz this year."-Jon Sobel
".......it comes all the more natural due to the contagious easiness and comfort, that can only stem from a quartet of great chemistry—which is clearly the case here."- Friedrich Kunzmann
"Ethiopian inflected jazz, both buoyant and brainy." -Fritz Balwit
"....here the leader is the author of a breathtaking intervention and of course Shepik is also a very wonderful guitarist, whose intent with Dingler is utterly telepathic. It is a disc that will be happily replayed many times, perfect both as an idea and as a realization in the studio." -Vittorio Lo Conte (translated from Italian)
