What some people have had to say about the CD:

“One of the best CDs I received all year!”
-Keith Emerson, legendary keyboardist for the band Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

I'm impressed by his musical sense. Nice variety of covers, and good originals for balance. More than his last CD, he steps front and center and presents Japhlet the Stick player. Good job. Keep it going. I wish him great times with the new CD leading the way.
-Steve Adelson, Stickist renown for his solo and Jazz work with Chieli Minucci, Jeff Berlin and Danny Gottlieb among others.

"This CD is epic in its scope! This is one of the most ambitious and well-executed Stick discs ever. The music is totally inspired and inspiring. I'm excited for him to see where he is in his musical life. "
- Greg Howard, Stickist renown for his solo work and with the Dave Matthews Band.

“Attias wields the Stick capably, with each short tune standing as a miniature etude to display his considerable technique. At once challenging and relaxing, Japhlet Bire Attias and this release merit further attention.”
-Dimitry Ekshut, Jazz Improv NY magazine
