Charles Gayle - saxophone, piano
"There is no player on the scene today with the emotional wallop of Charles Gayle. His later discs - particularly Ancient of Days - manifest a mature improvisational talent that can stand with any saxophonist's today." Robert Spencer, ALL ABOUT JAZZ

Hilliard Greene - double bass
"His fabulous arco bass mixes lyricism with a burning, literally ferocious desire of opening the listener's mind." - Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes, Italy, 2007
"I found his composition to be extraordinary in its depth of emotion. Hill’s remarkable virtuosity and passion on his instrument and spiritual awareness was ever present throughout." - Margot Elizabeth Meyers, Jazzimprov, NY, USA, 2006

Klaus Kugel - drums
"Klaus Kugel is a commanding force behind the drum set. He creates layers of tension drawn out from intuitive listening. There is a constant emotional swelling underlying every fill and cymbal crash. - John Barron, Jazzreview.com, USA, 2007
"These three discs ... show Kugel as a drummer whose nearly boundless energy and imagination cannot be confined by neat categories." - Ed Hazel, Signal To Noise, USA, 2006
