“…a showcase for its worldly but halcyon brand of acoustic fusion.”
- The New York Times

“There’s serenity but also a restless spark in the music of Surface to Air.”
- Philadelphia Weekly

“Surface to Air spins pastoral and meditative on their self-titled debut. With disciplined patience they sustain evocative atmospheres, modulating them with improvisation without rend-
ing the moods.”
- Sean Fitzell, NYC Jazz Record

“Chilled-out, genre-blurring folk-jazz.”
- Time Out New York

“A quiet intensity pervades a fine new album of originals tinged by too many worldly sounds to
mention” - Richard Gehr, The Village Voice

“...(they) go back to world jazz fusions of Don Cherry...Colin Wolcott...”
- Jon Garelick, Boston Phoenix

“ensemble interplay that is about vibe”
- Barry Cleveland, Guitar Player
