Whack Jazz Record of the Year for 2009 -- Something Else! That’s just the kind of primal sounds one hears coming from Tom Abbs’ Lost & Found. It socks you in the sonar solar flexes and just when you think you’ve figured it out, Abbs & Co. mixes it up with a flurry of jagged jabs to the harmonics. -- Victor Aaron

 

The basis for the entire design is tight, smart and so simple that it borders on the transcendental. -- Lynn Horton

 

Each of the fragments is linked and exquisitely explores the edge of melodic invention, the elasticity of harmony and the maniacal polyrhythmic possibilities when each of the musical elements collides with the other.

-- Raul D'Gama Rose, All About Jazz
