Quotes and Reviews of Sonic Twist® Unity CD

  • "...This is the type of avant garde expression that values subtlety and understatement rather than going out of its way to clobber the listener."

    Alex Henderson 12 MARCH 2021 | THE NEW YORK CITY JAZZ RECORD

  • "...you won’t find any more adventurous ambient electronic music than this. A true sense of freedom is conveyed as you listen… and your heart will come away from these songs jam-packed with the joy of living! MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99.

    Dick Metcalf - Editor, Contemporary Fusion Reviews

  • "...two artists creating sonic dance with sounds...which grabs your attention and never lets go." The album finishes with the ska-jazz sounds of "Frisky" and psychedelic flow of "Compression Expansion."
