"It’s a beautiful album, with really fantastic production ... The full set takes its time, building and burning and crashing, when all is said and done, into a tremendous round of applause. I can only imagine what it felt like in person, though the thrill of the room feels duly captured here." ★★★★★ — The Free Jazz Collective

“A perfect concert” — Spontaneous Music Tribune

“a brisk but free-flowing dialogue with phrases and ideas being batted back and forth between them ... in effect, they are soloing simultaneously with each being aware of the other's playing and responsive to it. Even when Parker gets locked into one of his protracted, circular-breathing solos, Smyth is still there with him, responding with an impressively gargantuan solo of his own. The two obviously understand and complement each other well.” — All About Jazz

“Parker and Smyth use stillness to step outside the ticks of the clock and build something mysterious and substantial in between ... still, cleansing ... powerful and affecting.” — The New York City Jazz Record
