For the Ensemble
the comma tour was... dynamic... energizing -- Morrie Green
How avant garde! We loved the show. We would love to have a copy of "dancing into the millennium"... (I miss) you doing your thing more... -- Twyla Grace
...wild shit, man... -- Rod Stryker

"...bizarre and challenging..." -- Downtown Music Gallery
"Comma commits poetry in the spirit of a jazz ensemble. The works on the disc don't begin with a poem or lyrics in the traditional sense. They begin with a process, a game, a space to play in... The CD is a beautiful demonstration of the belief that poetry is not just about meaning, but about the emotion, space, and mood that can be created just by how sound collides and mixes. --The Word: the monthly guide to the arts in Dallas, October 1998
For Question Authority, the
rocking the modish Dallas music scene with an instrument-free band -- The Met (Dallas)
