“Un des morceaux que l’on retiendra est le morceau « Riyaz », un composition originale du contrebassiste Chris Jennings, inspirée du folklore iranien. Chris Jennings nous a montré à quel point la contrebasse pouvait être un instrument lyrique, les phrases mélodiques de son introduction nous évoquaient le chant des religieux psalmodiant les versets du Coran.” Par Neil Saidi, http://toutelaculture.com/ mars 2011 concert au Sunside du Thomas Enhco Trio
