NEW VIBES IN TOWN
(4 out of 5 stars)
"There's not much competition when it comes to playing the vibes, but even if there were, Matthias Lupri would whup most of them. The Boston based musician doesn't sound like Milt Jackson or Gary Burton or Lionel Hampton or any of the other mallet-wielding patriarchs, and his intense writing distinguishes him even more so. Verbole's ballsy sax is a perfect foil, the two of them weaving in and out of each other's paths, sometimes at a ferocious pace as on "Freefall." Lots of tempo changes midtune, the band holds itself together by the telepathic rhythm section. It's obviously a tight group, given that the entire, impressive album was recorded in one afternoon. This is definitely a band worthy of greater recognition. --JazzNow Magazine - April 1999"
