"Carlos has put together a really interesting recording that is varied stylistically, while at the same time unified in approach and sound...a testament to the leader's conception and the inventive playing by a notable cast of sidemen. There is a lot of music happening here!"
- Dave Liebman -
"What makes Carlos stand out among the legions of musicians is that he has already crafted a very distinctive sound, approach and identity. ...
His warmth and generosity is consuming and infectious. You can't help but feel where he is coming from. His music is a very vivid detail of who he is as a person."
- Greg Osby -
"He is a bad man!!! One of the best!!"
- Bill Pierce -
"Carlos has developed his own language with a strong sense of tradition as well. Combine that with his Cuban roots and you have a unique voice that compels me to keep listening to him. Bravo Carlos!"
