...drummer Jay Frederick's personal zeal...show[s] dramatic evidence that jazz wants to
grow...throughout the session, his unique touch leaves nothing to chance. A variety of textures and a
willingness to go toe-to-toe with the front line make Frederick's contribution impressive.
-Jim Santella, All About Jazz
...refreshingly honest and exciting... Frederick lays down some fine drum work... contributing
additional clarity and insight to the band's inventive approaches.
-Lee Prosser, The Jazz Review
...his playing shows maturity well beyond his years
