Gino Robair "...holds the listener captive as he oscillates between the accidental and the intentional; between the tiniest, most delicate noise and a torrential outpouring of sound." -San Francisco Bay Guardian

"Robair is an enormously talented percussionist, with a thorough-going musicality and an instinct for the unexpected." - The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD

"Robair has taken the notion of open-ended improv to its logical endgame; milking maximum-impact rhythms from the most unlikely sources."- Jazziz
