"The eight pieces blend together so that it’s almost impossible to separate them, not unlike the empathetic interplay between Rempis’ horn, Reid’s cello, and Abrams’ bass. -Andy Beta, Pitchfork"
Tomeka Reid & Joe Morris
""Morris' and Reid's album is a challenge and argument for future, and more frequent, cello and guitar duo explorations. Tomeka Reid (cello), Joe Morris (guitar).""
Tomeka Reid & Nick Mazzarella
"Cellist / composer Tomeka Reid and saxophonist / composer Nick Mazzarella have become valuable contributors to the Chicago music scene(s) for over a decade. This collection of duets demonstrates equally their instrumental skills and innate musicality. The saxophone / cello combination goes back to, at least, the '50s with the Chico Hamilton Quintet and recordings by Eric Dolphy and Ron Carter in the '60s. Most relevant here though is the pairing of Julius Hemphill and Abdul Wadud in the '70s and beyond."
Tomeka Reid / Filippo Monico
""A wonderful, fully-improvised document of shifting tonal color, empathic interplay and dark, layered feeling - finally capturing on record the freer depth of Ms Reid's evolving art." -Olle Lawson, Free Jazz Blog 4.5 star review"
Geometry Of Caves
Tomeka Reid, Kyoko Kitamura, Taylor Ho Bynum, Joe Morris
"The record also makes plenty of room for each of the musicians' individual strengths to emerge: Bynum is in especially fine form, with movement from lyrical beauty to pure abstraction and noise (just listen to his menacing growls on "Glowworm" as evidence); but Morris is also characteristically exceptional, whether offering prickly fragments or his patented scrapes, as he's continually seeking ways to advance the dialogue. Reid's relentless imagination leads her from chamber-like passages to motion-filled ostinato phrases that always possess compelling rhythmic energy; and Kitamura will be a revelation to those who haven't yet encountered her unique brand of vocal improvisation, turning in an instant from subtle to spasmodic." - Troy Dostert All About Jazz"
