”...Mr. Haskins works his horn as if he was creating fantastic tapestries that tall timeless stories and are awash with gorgeous colours that are both warm and cool and, above all, absolutely beguiling. Mr. Haskins also plays this ethereal music with flawlessness and astounding fluidity. —Raul DaGama Rose

“There’s nothing fuzzy about Haskins’ logic on this superb and special album.” —Nick Bewsey's April Jazz picks for Icon Magazine
