"Composers Concordance . a grass-roots NYC uprising of an iconoclastic bunch who have been influenced equally by contemporary classical compositional stances as well as rock and other modern-day musics."
- G.A.Edwards, Gapplegate Music Review
"The absolute command of melodic and harmonic invention is even more interesting. More than that, the sublime understanding of the tonal palettes of strings, middle register brass and lower register woodwinds and, of course, the oceanic capability of the piano.
