New Reviews for Paul Bedal's "Mirrors" & Jeff Swanson's "Case-fitter"
"This is your standard straight-ahead modern jazz session, and all of these little things endow it with an individuality that is quite striking. And enjoyable… plenty enjoyable, too."
- Dave Sumner, Bird is the Worm
"Everything comes together well on Mirrors, an album so well tempered that there's just no way it could go wrong, and an achievement for Bedal as a player, composer, and leader. Mirrors is an album where everything just works."
- Anthony Dean-Harris, Nextbop
"...seamlessly goes from individual expressions to collective performances and blurs the boundaries between spontaneous and written music."
- Hrayr Attarian, Chicago Jazz Magazine
"However, the band enthusiastically channels their waves of passion and driving energy to convey emotions in an ardent way. They were particularly successful in this fundamental aspect."
