poem: "For Harold Bloom," A.R. Ammons
debut recording as a leader by now toronto-based musician/artist cauley. composed & improvised texts of great beauty & detail.
Ferocious & amusing, a reminder that people who go out convincingly are those with a strong sense of the communicative thrust of 'inside' playing.
-- Ben Watson, Hi-fi News & Record Review
Strong but measured musical statements that overwhelm with sensitivity, balance & detail.
Sophisticated Free Mingusness.
-- The Wire
