"John La Barbera’s stunning compositions and phenomenal playing, along with the entire ensemble’s spirited performance, put this recording in a class by itself”. Lyrichord Discs, Nick Fritsch.

“The music, directed by John La Barbera is folkish aiming for vitality above precision and often achieving both”.  The New York Times, John Pareles.
