Brian Clark This is an amazing album! Someone said it sounds like the future, which is right, and the future sounds like it's standing on the shoulders of giants such as Hancock, Zawinul, and the whole serpentine trail of jazz majesty, yeah, this is a future worth living. Love it that the amazing Nir Felder feats a track here. Favorite track: The View from Here (feat. Nir Felder).

DerekC An artist not previously known to me - but heard Equal Night on Jez Nelson's JazzFM show and was very impressed - so bought the whole recording and am not disappointed. Excellent music with a strong "feel". Not only this, but the recording and his website rekindled my interest in Krishnamurti - a real bonus :-)
