"The selections are wide ranging: The opener, an exuburant orgy of contrasting colors called "Harmonic Convergence," leads directly into a daunting drone, "Circulst Runes," which is followed by "Dead Man Blues," a sprightly Dixieland march that would earn Lester Bowie's stamp of approval. The music was made almost a decade ago, but it sounds as fresh as tomorrow." Michael Roberts - WESTWORD "BEST OF 98" (1/99)

"Between The Lines may be the--- sleeper of the year. -- Why doesn't a label pick up the group and run with it? Clearly a contender for my top-ten list. Steven A Lowey - CADENCE MAGAZINE (11/98)

"And while Hess's overall plan seems to be going after beauty and swing---, the basic attack has as much surging outward-motion as you're likely to ask for."
Brian Coley - SPIN

"The material, which mixes form and freedom, sounds entirely fresh today.
Norman Provizer - ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS (10/98)
