All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Pianist Tyson Rogers, saxophonist Jared Sims, and guitarist Eric Hofbauer met in graduate school at the New England Conservatory of Music and have gelled as a trio. They recorded two earlier CDs together, but this third session adds two guests both seasoned veterans to the mix: bassist Cecil McBee and drummer Matt Wilson. It is clear that all three men are reaching new heights as composers as well as performers. Rogers' sauntering "Until We Have Names" mixes a hypnotic melody with an angular feeling. "Abdullah" is a catchy mix of gospel flavor with African rhythms in tribute to South African pianist and composer Abdullah Ibrahim, in which Rogers and Hofbauer interweave ...

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Pianist Tyson Rogers, saxophonist Jared Sims, and guitarist Eric Hofbauer met in graduate school at the New England Conservatory of Music and have gelled as a trio. They recorded two earlier CDs together, but this third session adds two guests both seasoned veterans to the mix: bassist Cecil McBee and drummer Matt Wilson. It is clear that all three men are reaching new heights as composers as well as performers. Rogers' sauntering "Until We Have Names" mixes a hypnotic melody with an angular feeling. "Abdullah" is a catchy mix of gospel flavor with African rhythms in tribute to South African pianist and composer Abdullah Ibrahim, in which Rogers and Hofbauer interweave intricate solos underneath Sims' smoking tenor sax. One has to love a song titled "Dead Mouse Blues"; its mournful theme played in unison by Sims and Hofbauer before giving way to Rogers' frisky solo. The guitarist's twisting post-bop vehicle "The High Priest's Sermon" is a real cooker, while "Bench Carvin'" has a Thelonious Monk-like vamp to back Sims' high-pitched but swinging soprano sax. Sims' jaunty tango "The Old Country" is another great feature for his soprano. McBee and Wilson provide a solid rhythmic foundation for the younger men throughout the date. All in all, this is a delightful session by some up-and-coming musicians deserving of wider recognition.
