Notes & Reviews:

"...Quest, from 1994, sustains [Crumb's] very high level of invention, with its distinctive exploration of timbral effects. Vivid, often percussive sounds and darting, restless lines create a tantalizing, fragmented effect that's quite beguiling. Acoustic guitar, played brilliantly by David Starobin, is the main solo instrument, but soprano saxophone seamlessly weaves phrases from the spiritual 'Amazing Grace' into the texture...a quite wonderful album." ***** -Hamilton, Classic CD
