”In the second movement, he (Henry Threadgill) and Hoffman went head to head on alto and cello, while Heffernan and Kodheli scraped disconsolately and Kavee stoked polyrhythmic fires; it was the first of two peaks in a consistently gripping performance. ~Village Voice

“Indeed, the cellist at times appeared to be channeling the combined spirits of Shankar and John McLaughlin.” ~DCist.com

“.....(Aaron Ali Shaikh) is responding to the shard melodic stage with the excellent improvising cellist, Christopher Hoffman. The two gracefully twist and twine, allowing each moments of space.” ~ All About Jazz
