Yuval Ron & Residents of the Future give the fusion world something to be proud of. To have young men of their age carrying the torch of the genre so highly, and with so much flavor and flair, one cannot help but be impressed. They pay homage to the fusion greats, as can be clearly heard in their music, but they also add their own totally unique attitude and touches to the tunes they perform. Clearly, the torch has been passed to the next generation. And fusion fans such as myself could not be more pleased. - http://jazzrockz.blogspot.com/
Take refined artistic prowess, add modern electronic technology, Middle Eastern musical modes, the pulse of North American fusion Jazz .... then add plenty of chutzpah...., and you end up with the exciting works of Yuval Ron and his quartette from Israel. Focusing primarily on their own compositions, this collection of well-crafted contemporary material is further testimony to the universal appeal of Jazz for the creative residents of all cultures. Broad sweeps of musical texture, intriguing harmonic progressions, cutting edge melodic ideas and sophisticated syncopations mirror the works of late Twentieth Century fusion ensembles. Yuval Ron and Residents Of The Future seem to be reminding us that, as in their part of the world, the past and the future will meet in the present. - Robin H.S Munro, Vortex Magazine
