"What Survives (Radio Edits)" is a collection of original jazz recordings inspired by Tobin Mueller's Broadway musical, Creature, remastered and edited for radio play. "One of the freshest and most sheerly entertaining, intriguing and exciting recordings I've come across. The product of Tobin Mueller's kaleidoscopic mind. Highly recommended." - Brad Walseth, JazzChicago.net "Tobin Mueller works like a mad scientist, like Dr. Frankenstein himself. His music is filled with lyricism and reflection, invention and new creation. With fellow lab partners, he puts on goggles and gives new allure to what began as a Broadway show but ended up a Jazz Masterpiece." - George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly "...captures at its zenith Mueller’s genius ability to dance in and out of motifs and themes, grooves and genres. He makes his unique takes on jazz sound effortless, expansive, beautiful and awesome..." - John LaMantia, contributing critic for Downbeat Magazine
