"Matt Slocum has emerged as one of the great young drummers in New York City, and therefore all of jazz… Slocum clearly places empathy and ensemble eloquence over solo fireworks, with sublime results."

"A meticulous, deeply realized work, remarkable not only for its coherence as a single arc but also for its evolving, authentic poignancy… This dreamlike, lyrical, fervent, floating music is capable of erupting in joy or pain."


"Slocum’s writing and playing emphasize a breathing, expressive, virtually speech-like flow of shifting meters... The young drummer constantly surprises, embracing the kit as a reactive and explorative multi-percussion whole. A fresh voice.”
