What they said:

Knitting Factory (2001), www.knittingfactory.com

Show: Ademaj / Carter / Garlitz / Hamilton / Pride
Sentiment and exploration. Voices reaching into hope and memory, reaching across to each other,
inventing a shared language, dancing from advanced complexity to
delicate simplicity to unbridled cataclysm.
Improvising to free the body and mind,
thru toe-tappin', headbangin', rumpshakin' and dreams...

Knitting Factory (2000), Review by Steve Dalachinsky

show: Dustin Garlitz, Jaime Fennelly, Dave Reaboi, Mike Pride

ice to fire > calm water to gushing falls/ warm to outrageously hot/ soft so(u)los of the individual voice
to collective madness/ monologues
within dialogues > RANTS/ the outer limits to the inside groove
& back toward inner space/ Quartet showing a mature explosive restraint
(to not hold back)/
while steeped within the learning process/ the 2 bass hit & halting saxophonal colliding-scope/
drum at heart -rudiments thru sediment/ of music without sentiment meant to heal & teach/
new comers with new promise/ their Ears tuned in to the present & past/ their Eyes glued on the Future

Dustin Garlitz - tenor sax; Jaime Fennelly - contrabass;
Dave Reaboi - contrabass; Mike Pride - percussion, toys
