    “It’s a concentrated, potent dose of thundering jazz-metal power, more orchestral than big-band, thrilling no matter how you categorize it.”  Phil Freeman, Burning Ambulance, read full review…

    “Don’t let the eighteen-member size of this jazz band scare you. This isn’t Grandpa’s big band, nor your Dad’s. Nor necessarily anybody else who’s into big band jazz. The Nathan Parker Smith Large Ensemble, perhaps the world’s only modern creative heavy metal horn band, is for the rest of us.” S. Victory Aaron, Something Else Reviews, read full review…

    “…[a] band that just about blows down the house… This is blockbuster, even bruising, music with little respite on the program; such vigorous music might scare some folks away, [I] can’t wait to hear this ensemble live.” Richard B. Kamins, Step Tempest, read full review… 

    “…[a] seriously aggressive large ensemble… Music that speaks loudly and carries a big stick, too.” Dave Sumner, Wondering Sound, read full review…

    “…[a] muscular, bracingly intricate new disc…” Time Out New York, read full review…
