"Conference Call swings with a gleeful impetuosity that's hard if not impossible to dislike. Kinda sounds like what the late '60s Miles Davis Band might have become had they stayed the course." - JazzTimes Magazine (2004)
"Conference Call is making some amazing music under everybody's radar." Cadence Magazine (2004)
