MIKE JURKOVICALL ABOUT JAZZ"Jazz meets rock meets gypsy and whimsy, each track powered by an effervescence and ebullience found all too rarely when outstanding talents convene." Read the full review here.
ANTHONY DEAN HARRISNEXT BOP"These three are a great trio who have dazzled on their own and with others for years. Whether backing Stanley Clarke, Marquis Hill, Makaya McCraven, or any other fantastic talent, these three have built distinct voices that sound very much them (and in a way, very much Chicago). It would only make sense that they would one day make a co-led trio album, even more so that it would sound this good. Wonderment is their natural state." Review here.
RON SCHEPPERTEXTURA"Wonderment is trio playing of an inordinately high order, the sound of three advanced musos joyfully bringing the material they so clearly love into being." Read the full review here.

DEE DEE MCNEILMUSICAL MEMOIRS“This ensemble is rich with crescendos of energy, tender with sweetly sung melodies and daring with provocative performances by each individual instrumentalist and composer. Somehow, they meet in the middle, and have created an unusual and very pleasant work of musical art." Review here.
RICHARD B. KAMINSSTEP TEMPEST “Whether they are dancing delightfully (Deitmeyer's "Wokey Dokey") or creating a mysterious flow (Brock's title track) or negotiating a tricky rhythm ((Ulery's "Pumpkin Patch"), the music shines with creative interactions, well-drawn melodies, and fine solo moments.” Read the full review here.
DANIELE CAMERLENGOSUONO"[TRANSLATED] The best thing to do in these cases, given the rarity of such art excellence in circulation, is to enjoy this true and audacious listening experience with the smile of the heart and the dance of the body." Full Italian review here.
MATT MICUCCIJAZZIZ"A collection of twelve original compositions covering a wide array of compositional and improvisatory ground, as well as a wide range of emotions, but always favoring sincerity, Wonderment stands as a coming together of separate journeys into one strong, long-awaited personal statement."

BASS MAGAZINE"Occasionally a group of musicians can illuminate the path ahead together with that immutable light afforded through trust - such is the case for this heavyweight ensemble of Chicago elite." Read the full review here.
