“Billy Childs possesses the improvisatory skills and powerful sense of swing that identify a world-class artist. Childs is an inventive composer and arranger whose effort in those areas consistently expands the dimension of the jazz genre - and beyond.” New York Times
“Childs has the ability to distill the languages of classical music and jazz into his wide-ranging vocabulary. His insistent pulse and melodically probing introductions allow a flexible approach to time — leaving an open door for input from his always brilliant bandmates.” JAZZIZ Magazine
“Billy’s current partners in crime are drummer Ari Hoenig, one of the most maniacally obsessive, spasmodic and musical drummers in jazz, an absolutly disconcerting phenomenon of the drums ! and bassist Alex Boneham who has been the chosen bassist for Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and was even featured alongside fellow bassist Christian McBride !” Jazz Times
