“I believe that Carl Testa is an example of what can happen when there is courage, dedication, and clear vision. My hope is to have many more opportunities playing music with this guy, and sharing information and learning together. Carl Testa is already a great musician, and the best is yet to come. This is a guy to watch.” Anthony Braxton in Liner Notes to Quartet (GTM) 2006
