'This daring trio of drummer Michael Evans, guitarist Anders Nilsson and in-demand free-jazz bassist Ken Filiano operates on a delicate, acute listening dynamic for half of this experimental ECM-ish program (particularly on Carla Bley's 'Floater' and Nilsson's ambient 'Sound Fear'). But they are also capable of exploding with rock-fueled dissonance and bombast, as on Evans' 'Road Runner'. Filiano, a deep-toned anchor on upright, contributes extraordinary arco work throughout, while Evans shines in rubato situations, a la Paul Motian. And Nilsson is steeped in the renegade six-string tradition of Bill Frisell, David Torn, Terje Rypdal and Fred Frith."-Bill Milkowski/Jazz Times May 2009.
