“Garey Williams displays a beautiful touch and emotion in his drumming. He performs with a strong technique and a keen sense of what to play in a studio situation to achieve the correct balance within a jazz/rock trio setting. His drums sound fat, wet, and well recorded. His cymbal work is very expressive…possesses noteworthy chops…” Also: There is not a standout track on the CD (Ecstasy In Numbers, Spellbound), They are ALL outstanding.”
