Fred Lonberg-Holm & Ken Vandermark
"Fred Lonberg-Holm and Ken Vandermark are like a small band on this album, tight, voluminous, ideally matched, often it seems as if the music was pre-composed (but all of it is freely improvised). The music is like a dance between a songbird (cello) and a belling deer (tenor saxophone), sometimes their energy literally collides. -Martin Schray, Free Jazz Blog"
Mats Gustafsson / Massimo Pupillo / Brian Chippendale
"This isn't a sophisticated listen. It's almost drone-like, giant blocks of sound, titan steps, played at hyper-speed. Lightspeed drone? Whatever it is it, fittingly, returns to the fire to close. -Joel Barela, Free Jazz Blog"
"Eight meditations on just intonations. Electro-instrumental music of shining serenity."
Bonnie Jones & Jeff Surak
"A remarkable document of two musicians in their prime, Gymnastics is a split release from Baltimore based sound artist Bonnie Jones and veteran DC experimenter Jeff Surak."
""The ten untitled improvisations radiate a kind of almost spiritual refining of Lonberg-Holm’s deep, personal relationship with the instrument. He channels and distills his extensive experience to the most essential, in an honest, sober and unpretentious manner that still sparks with the initial innocence and passion to discover new, fascinating sounds." - Salt Peanuts"
