“Making sense of the world we live in seems to be one of the focal points of Adam Rudolph’s life…the way he has chosen to do so is through making music, most of it collaboratively.” New Music Box
“Hamid Drake brings a unique, uplifting energy to the table, whether singing a Sufi devotional song while accompanying himself with a frame drum, or connecting the dots between modern and traditional rhythms on a jazz kit.” Jazz Times
