The original compositions are based on simple expanded and juxtaposed intervallic compositional motifs that are skillfully notated, arranged and contributed by each member. Read more...

“…McCarthy is a fearless singer who deftly refuses to be categorized as she explores personalized means for expressing ideas; she travels infrequently heard avenues for exploring thought and adapts vocal technique to fit the circumstances of her message.”
Bill Donaldson - Jazz Inside Magazine

“…Dom Minasi is a six string Cecil Taylor.” David Adler - The New York City Jazz Record
