”This is the fifth album as leader by NYC-based guitarist Pete McCann and demonstrates just what heights the jazz guitar is capable of reaching when placed in the hands of an expert who understands the meaning of balance and finesse.” - Roger Farbey, All About Jazz

“Not an album to pigeonhole, it's an album for today but with many different facets: Gentle ethereal sounds; hard postbop and some wild jazz rock blasts.” - Lance Liddle, Bebop Spoken Here

“Living up to its title, Range makes a compelling case for McCann's manifold abilities, as a crack improviser, a noteworthy composer and a magnanimous bandleader.” - Troy Collins, All About Jazz

“It's a cool effect switching from cerebral, passive engagement to supercharged emotional connectivity.” - Dave Sumner, Bird is the Worm
