‘Fans of open-ended, telepathic, “conversational” jamming will enjoy this latest project by David Gans and friends, all folks who are steeped in the idiom. I especially love the long track “Three Food Groups” here, which brings to mind the classic opus of the jamming genre, “Dark Star.” Enjoy.’ – Steve Silberman
