“Edgy and angular… but also surprisingly lyrical… imaginatively captures the boundless creative spirit of improvisational cello in the hands of a gifted artist.” – Greg Cahill, Strings magazine

Cedar Creek Radio reviews The Sweet Volcano

•March 17, 2013 • Leave a Comment

“Authoritarian, boisterous, impetuous, exploratory, frequently cacophonous, this stark collection of improvisations effortlessly transcends genre and yet is consistently intimate and welcoming. This is a tone dialogue and the story Matt and Greg have to tell is compelling and urgent. The title track, divided into three parts, is a many hued swatch that oscillates between anxiety and inquisitiveness.”

– Jeff Messerman
