Reviews:

“...stylized playing where Eastern European melodies clash with energetic American-style spontaneity. The instrumental configuration is unique. Combining the accordion with electronics and placing them in the same arena with heavy back-beat drumming and free wheeling alto blowing results in a conglomeration that cannot be neatly slotted into a musical category.......” Frank Rubolino
