March 2015, Downbeat

**** …this band’s taste is fairly impeccable.

January 6, 2015, All About Jazz

Markowitz delivers heavy ideas without a heavy touch and Brock marries the bold with the mannered, bringing a stinging brilliance to the fore during the fiery material.

Dec. 3, 2014, Chicago Tribune

…among the year’s best in jazz… intellectual heft and harmonic sophistication…

Oct. 31. 2014, Wondering Sound

…it’s the variations in motion from song to song and the thrilling way they flow through the entire album that makes this a stand-out.

Oct. 28, 2014 Jazz In Europe

Markowitz and Brock have delivered an incredible CD that draws from many traditions, bringing this all together in a coherent set that defies categorization.

Oct. 19, 2014, Chicago Tribune

From the opening of the set, Brock and Markowitz produced music of driving rhythmic power and long-lined lyricism. If Markowitz’s pulsing pianism in his “Perpetuity” evoked the perpetual-motion music of Prokofiev, Brock rode that rhythm beautifully, producing exquisite legato phrases one moment, an onrush of ideas the next. But it was the sound of the two of them together – Markowitz’s telegraphic pianism and Brock’s sinewy violin tone – that proved distinctive.

Oct. 16, 2014, Chicago Tribune

Each track establishes its own world of sound; each composition bristles with complex ideas unflinchingly stated and rigorously developed.

Markowitz’s classical erudition and Brock’s jazz syntax come together to powerful effect, the intellectual heft and harmonic sophistication of the music-making matched by its rhythmic energy in uptempo pieces and swing undertow elsewhere.
