Mike Fahie's debut CD... features an explosive and exploratory ensemble. ... There is so much to enjoy on this program, starting with the impressive original compositions and intelligent arrangements. ... After hearing Mike Fahie as a member of trombone sections on several fine recordings, it's such a treat to hear his music and playing on Anima. This is the sort of program that just gets better with each listen. Richard B. Kamins http://steptempest.blogspot.com/2010...ages-soul.html
A delightfully hard to pin down eclectic album, there’s something here for the pickiest contemporary jazzbo as well as the casual groover just looking for some new kicks. Highly creative throughout, the sure footed playing is sure to make a positive impression no matter what your jazz stripe. Check it out. Chris Spector Midwest Record
