In many respects the music played by this band sits on a pretty level playing field with the larger ensembles of Ellington, Mingus and also of Carla Bley's big bands, and Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra. -- Raul D'Gama Rose, All About Jazz


For those not aware of the incredible recordings from previous editions of the CWE, it's time to catch up, starting with this fabulous modern music display -- then please go back to earlier albums. Old News Borrowed Blues is a strong candidate for best jazz CD of 2009. -- Michael G. Nastos, All Music Guide


With soloists that include Claire Daly (baritone sax) and Craig Rivers (soprano sax), and recent Art Ensemble of Chicago bassist Jeribu Shahid as part of the group, this is definitely one of the strongest releases of the year and needs to be heard.
