"A talented saxophonist with a warm, full sound that gives his semi-free playing weight on its own and when intersecting with trumpet player Paul Smoker"

Gary Giddins, The Village Voice

"It was a good, even brilliant, idea to bring Hess together with new musicians to try something a little different than what he usually does."

Steven Loewy, All Music Guide

"Exposed is an exhilarating work-out ..... offering compelling evidence of the healthy state of the contemporary improvising quartet. This essential document showcases a brilliant band on top of their game."

David Lewis, Cadence Magazine

"If Mr. Hess' previous activities have missed your attention, this release should put him in your sights. It's one of his best (we might even immodestly suggest that it is his best) to date."

Jazz Loft

"Exposed serves notice that his strengths and eclecticism as a composer are as solidified as his abilities as a player."

Bret Saunders, The Denver Post
