Reviews for Thought versus Emotion

Near-pop melodies mix with a bit of funk, while fire and especially lyricism both get their due on “Thought Versus Emotion.”

-Andrea Canter, Jazz Police

[B]etween their own fiery originals, they work in inventive covers of Joni Mitchell's “All I Want,” Stevie Wonder's “Higher Ground” and Kevin Washington's “Three Days.”

-Ross Raihala, Pioneer Press
