"FlavaEvolution...keep it simple, adding three horns to nothing but bass. The result might seem unusual at first, but the cool grooves this band creates won't leave you questioning their bona fides for long."
The Valley Advocate
"FlavaEvolution is an unusual and unusually talented jazz band...the band's groove is sometimes achieved by implication. Somehow, you can almost hear the absent drummer."
The Valley Advocate
"FlavaEvolution...bringing its clear passion for jazz to the world through skill and dedication...played as if their instruments were simply extensions of their bodies." "FlavaEvolution is a unique blend of styles that uses some amazing talent, innovative techniques, with an undying passion for music."
The Daily Collegian
"This group composed of four highly accomplished and talented musicians perform their unique sound and fantastic arrangements of material from many genres with contagious energy and enthusiasm. As a music event organizer I can highly recommend FlavaEvolution and their appeal to a broad range of listeners. I love these 4 guys."
Carol Abbe Smith
Northampton Jazz Festival and Easthampton City Arts+
"FlavaEvolution is nearly, completely unique, having only bass (expertly played) to place down the landscape all by himself, over which the three nimble and sensitive soloist horns do the lead and chordal work. It is a fascinating combination which succeeds. The audience must at first accept the listening challenge to suspend disbelief long enough to allow the players to tell their story which they do beautifully. It very clearly reminds me once again that music is made up of what one puts in and what one leaves out."
"I have been scheduling jazz artists for a couple of venues in Western Massachusetts for several years. This is a group of talented musicians carrying on the jazz tradition in their own “evolved” way. Original compositions and arrangements of jazz standards—they are high energy and joyous in their presentations. I love this group---they’re cute too!"
