World-class musicians...a nice melodic bass solo...spot-on Dreyer...Dreyer’s solo bass work was especially noteworthy for its good intonation in the thumb position...There was an easy depth to the music, if such is possible, as if the musicians were digging in hard, but were confident they were in touch with each other and that the audience felt that as well. The circle was closed. That’s what communication is about.—Steve Provizer, The Arts Fuse, February 27, 2018
