All Music Guide - 4 stars

Hungarian magazine Gramofon awarded it “Hungarian jazz album of the year, 2003”.

This music exemplifies the music of today in a very high form. I am most impressed with the ensemble work, the solos, the compositions, the marriage of music of many cultures all done naturally, nothing sounds forced, as if this is as it should be. I will be listening to this many times and enjoying new discoveries each time.
