"From swinging piano melodies to moody atmospheric prepared rhodes, Armen brings a myriad of sounds for the listeners delight."

"Armen Nalbandian's new trio release is a testament to what is happening in contemporary jazz today. A beautiful combination of hard bop, free improvisation, and experimentation, Nalbandian's new compositions (and the band that he has put together to realize them) are at once provocative, referential, and curiously "out" without leaving the lay listener a way in.”
