«The band cooks, no question about it” — All Music Guide

“The ‘Bop’ in the band’s name can be best described as hard-bop in the Jazz Messenger’s vein – forthright and hard-hitting with a certain swagger.” — Jazz Times

“Known for their percolating percussion as well as dipping into straight ahead jazz, this Washington D.C. based octet lets the rumba rumble, the cha-cha churn and the samba simmer” — All About Jazz

“masterful in their use of the color palette this collection of musicians is capable of.” — Rochester City Newspaper

»This is an awesome ensemble on all counts: writing, soloing, and swinging!" — Ed Soph, Jazz Drumming Legend, Professor of Music, University of North Texas
