Quotation

* "Kullhammar skitters around the changes like a crazed waterbug, pausing on occasion to screech, squeal, honk, growl and make other unpleasant sounds that remind one of such other modernists as Archie Shepp, David Ware, Albert Ayler, Roscoe Mitchell or . . .well, you get the idea."//Jack Bowers, All about Jazz

* "Kullhammar, who is not known in the U.S., is an outstanding player with very impressive technique, a lively and extroverted style and the ability to range from bop to free. His playing on this set is mostly boppish but always forward-looking, and he is not shy to display emotional intensity"//Scott Yanow, allmusic.com
