All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
Bassist Bryan Doherty's debut album opens with a bass groove vaguely reminiscent of something Jaco Pastorius might have done in Weather Report. Over the top of this, what sounds like a couple of horns (though there's only one sax player) lay out a thick melodic line that eventually moves into a groove.

While the band can move through styles near and far, it's in the pieces more akin to a nightclub groove that the band, and Doherty, can really shine. A case in point is the bubbling bassline in "Cluj-Napoca," which bends the bass into something rarely heard, but entirely worth the price of admission.
