«Bienheureux ceux qui ont eu la chance d’assister à cet enregistrement en direct, effectué dans ce haut lieu du jazz montréalais!» La Scena Musicale (Montréal),Décembre 2009 December / Janvier 2010 January

«Tiens que voilà un disque réjouissant, sentant bon la poudre et les excès. Dans la mouvance, mais sans copier, nos quatre artilleurs rejoignent les territoires du saxophoniste John Zorn et probablement, en guise de clin d’”il, ceux du regretté Roland Kirk. On ne le mentionnera jamais assez, qu’un concert devant public et sans trop de montage vaut son pesant d’or, justement parce qu’il y a une atmosphère introuvable en studio. Jazz sous haute tension mené de main de maître par le saxophoniste argentin Damian Nisenson, coulées de lave incandescente comme il se doit, esprit free juste ce qu’il faut, bref, un très grand disque.» Christophe Rodriguez in Sorties Jazz Nights (Montréal), November 12, 2009

«Ce que ces artistes montréalais, et non strictement musiciens, nous proposent, vous offrent, est absolument extraordinaire.» Serge Truffaut in Le Devoir (Montréal), November 7, 2009

«Un jazz actuel à la montréalaise, avec des touches latines et juives, plus une influence rock.» François Couture in Monsieur Délire (Québec), 3 11 2009

« Oh que oui! La prochaine fois que quelqu'un de plate me demande la définition de «party», je lui passe cet album. Nozen est en feu pour une session que je me flagèle le dos de roseaux d'avoir manqué! J'ai juste le goût d'être aussi su'l party lors de leurs spectacles que quand j'allais voir Grimskunk à 16 ans, faut l'faire! » FD in CISM (Montréal), 12 novembre 2009
