„ORkAaN ORkEstRA has created a beautiful recording. The music is arranged with a wide array of influences. The use of electronics with the acoustic instruments adds interesting textures at just the right moments. The music on this recording also makes me sure that this was made by a real group. Created by artists that all had input. It is very clear from the first listening that the ORkAaN ORkEstRA is a true collective.“ Scott Colley (Bassist - Herbie Hancock, Chris Potter, Jim Hall)
