CD/LP/Track Review

More articles about Deric Dickens
“…This is an album without any other ambition than to bring fun stuff, enjoying the interplay of rhythm and lyricism in its simplest format…” “...an incredibly fun album...” “Therapeutic music? Possibly among the best, without pretense.” (Stef Gijssels- Free Jazz Blog)

“Speed Date” should please listeners who believe that 21st Century jazz is too conservative…” (Richard Kamins- Step Tempest)

“Each participant brings his special flavor to the program, whether it's Lederer somewhat madcap style, Knuffke's exploratory side, Crowley's low-key playfulness (a la Lester Bowie), Udden's sweetly melodic side, Cohen's mellow edge (a Ben Webster quality is evident in his smoky tones) and Wilson's...well, Matt Wilson is always irrepressible.” (Richard Kamins- Step Tempest)
