JazzTimes review of Ready Everyday

JazzTimes review of Ready Everyday:

"That the scene is as fluid conceptually as well is evidenced by the freewheeling, insistently swinging and wide-ranging sounds to be found here. The tight group (alto saxophonist Aram Shelton, cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm and bassist Anton Hatwich round out the lineup) is a meaty postbop ensemble on the opening "Ready Everyday," but a delicate little outfit in their anti-"Band Theme"; they soar in like a Hendrix-ian dive bomber in the opening of "Signs" and then tap dance with jittery insistence through "Saying Yes," effortlessly segueing from the delicately to the ominously dark ("Blackout," "Pax Urbanum")."
