“What’s immediately striking is the sense of calm and spaciousness found at the heart of this music. There are no fireworks on display, nothing is hurried or rushed. Instead, there is an intense focus on mood, on emotion, with each instrumental voice striving for an intelligent and restrained clarity…..This World is a sublime album performed by a quartet of stellar improvisers.” Des Cowley, Rhythms Magazine
