★★★★½

All About Jazz

Heatmap is truly exhilarating post-Ornette free-jazzmaking, and confirms just how much rich invention that method can still set loose.

★★★★ (Editor's Pick)

Jazzwise

Heatmap radiates with brilliance, highlighting the very act of playing music and the intangible but irreplaceable energy that doing so creates.

DownBeat Magazine

Heatmap is a masterpiece-we cannot find a term that defines it more precisely-and, for the writer, a very pleasant surprise.

Musica Jazz (Italy)

Seriously impressive in every way, this mood-shifting music leaves you breathless.

NYC Jazz Record

... a splendid cross-section of contemporary music… one of the most impressive aspects of this music is how this quartet can sizzle, explode, whisper, and float without ever sounding forced or unnatural.

Step Tempest

the compositions and improvisations heard here, in a classic jazz quartet… are examples of a talented composer and excellent instrumentalists, with completely assimilated influences from the entire body of modern jazz.

Vinylmine

explosive altoist

The New York Times

The results are dark and intense, often raw and blistering…A rich, varied and deeply satisfying album by a jazz supergroup.

The Wire

…a set of music that leaves ample space for the album’s remarkable improvisers to explore and invent.
