“As radical and questioning as elements of Jazz Trash are, the disc is as imbued with jazz life. Eskelin's personal compositional vision, his supple phrasing and gorgeous tenor sound all qualify him as a major player in today's creative music....One of the great emergent talents of our time.” John Corbett, Down Beat
“A display of edgy virtuosity that is constantly unpredictable, a mix of eerie rhythms and hair-raising playing....Highly recommended.” Jerome Wilson, Option
