“What separates these tracks from other rock-leaning cuts made by jazz musicians today? It feels authentic. And then the brief funk tune “Scatterbrain” emerges about halfway though the album, there’s chicken-scratch guitar and a simple yet heavy beat that screams The Meters. But later, things get eerie, as is someone was mixing funk with a New York jazz edge. That someone was Chang.” — Brad Faberman (Downbeat Mag.)
