"3 1/2 stars. Engaging stylistic hopscotch from saxophonist Chris Greene." - DownBeat Magazine.

"Greene...was neither constrained by genre, personnel or influence. His gift -- putting everything he can imagine into the mix, and still ending up with a cohesive package. - Tomorrow's Verse, April 10, 2017

"A great one from saxophonist Chris Greene – a player who just seems to get better and better with each new release – maturing to a point where his strong status on the Chicago scene should be overtaken by a wider national reputation...he's able to really embrace a palette of jazz that makes him way stronger than just another well-skilled local musician." -
