Album Reviews:

The Wire - "FLASHPOINT is a valuable document that shows how the 60s European jazz movement was dawning, with some of its brightest stars already in the ascendant."

JazzTimes (p.62) - "Surman's lyrical waltz-time number 'Once Upon a Time' is a flugelhorn feature for Wheeler, who delivers with impeccable intonation, uncanny clarity and precision in the high register."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.97) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he set sizzles with modal invention and exploratory large ensemble compositions..."
