"Free Advice is a timeless trio masterpiece destined to surprise listeners for years to come."
Troy Collins, All About Jazz

"This is a gem. The colors of the Rhodes, the level of musicianship, and good old inspiration make for the most musical of collisions. It hasn’t left my player for weeks. "
Dan Rose, OneFinalNote

"If you asked me to make a long enough wish-list for musical projects, I'm sure I'd wind up asking for a trio with an elite post-jazz keyboardist smearing a Fender Rhodes electric piano over a snap-crackle-pop free jazz rhythm section. You can imagine how great it felt to have any such wish pre-empted by a disc that jumps right into the stratosphere with a leadoff take on Dolphy's "Gazzelloni" that fits the proposable scheme as tight as I could hope for. This disc just destroys me... "
Michael Anton Parker, Downtown Music Gallery (NYC)

"The set consists mostly of Monk tunes, with three Karayorgis originals (including "Disambiguation," one of my faves), one by Hasaan Ibn Ali, and a crushingly good version of [Eric Dolphy's] "Gazzelloni." After a few listens -- especially to their quirky, ruminative "Ugly Beauty" and shifty, mischevious "Monk's Point" -- it's apparent that, as with the best Monk interpreters, there's no slavish appropriation of key monastic gestures....It's a killer recording."
Jason Bivins, Signal to Noise

"Betwixt reveals (Karayorgis) as a sonic architect of the highest order, a visionary improviser whose enthusiasm for the possibilities of sound knows no limit. Together, Karayorgis, McBride and Newton offer a thrilling set guaranteed to turn heads."
Troy Collins , All About Jazz
