Press Quotes

"Fans of high energy '60s free jazz blowouts will find Burn Baby Burn to be of strong interest. This release should lead to a reappraisal of Norman Howard's skills, and some appreciation for the forgotten altoist Joe Phillips." - Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

"Despite the profound obscurity of Norman Howard's music, and that of his mate Joe Phillips, it's crucial as a window not only into the influence that Albert Ayler carried in creative music, but into how the Aylers affected the musicians of their hometown. Most importantly, this reflects on how vital free music has been at the local level, where it remains so to this day." - Clifford Allen, Liner Notes to "Burn Baby Burn"
