"If the news hasn't reached you, then listen up! Saxophonist Ben Schachter is one of the sharpest improvisers in modern jazz."
Ben Schachter: Press
"...Schachter's tenor practically bursts at the seams with feeling..."
"...the power of...Dave Holland...or Steve Coleman...the authority of Joe Lovano..."
"...Ben Schachter's Trio of Many is working on a new style of freedom and democracy."
"....beautifully arranged interludes offset by passages of boundless improvising...something special is happening here."
"...Schachter writes peppery tunes that tapdance on the subconscious before his searing saxophone takes over to blow down the house."
"...advanced harmonic capabilities and fluid, sure-fire rhythmic drive....a personal and present-tense sound."
"He plays with a tone like a fine carving knife -- buffed and burnished and sharpened to a fine edge."
"...has a fire in his soul that he vents through angular, topsy-turvy bop explosions."
"...Schachter fired up his heavy tenor to display some serious monster chops...he could be king of the mountain."
