All material is composed by Dan and is reminiscent of the classic Blue Note sound, but with a modern flavour. In a recent review from Mark Gilbert (Jazz Journal) the album was described as "...timelessly modern..." and suggested that  "...if this particular band plays near you try to catch it; fans of the idiom won't be disappointed."
