“I was pleased to host the Negative Press Project recently and they delivered an enjoyable show. It was high in adventure and exuberance, with a variety of original charts and a sweet front-linehorn section. They made odd meters sound notso-odd and their writing was never predictable. They give hope for the future of creative music.”

~ Jimmy Pedersen
