Check out the buzz...

"On the rhythmically and harmonically diverse, improvisation-rich, spiritual minded A Burgeoning Consciousness, he whirlwinds together the best of all styles as the leader of a powerhouse sextet."

Jonathan Widran, JWVibe

"Your mind will flicker back and forth between the sum and its parts, and then you'll relax and hear the whole sound wash over you complete, especially as each of these epic tunes reach a thrilling climax."

Marc Phillips, The Vinyl Anachronist

"The guitarist puts together a tight, unfussy melody, and rolls it out like it had a bank of spotlights covering its movement."

Dave Sumner, Jazz Recommendations - 2018

"When playing this I often find myself closing my eyes and just getting into the feel, the rhythm and soul of the album, as it truly is a beautiful piece of work."

Kev Rowland, FRaME Music

"Noshir's involvement and dedication to producing music with true power is total, and his players are all cut from that same cloth; this is music that will stand the test of time and survive."

Dick Metcalf, Contemporary Fusion Reviews

"Noshir Mody's newest album expands minds; musical horizons"

Dodie Miller-Gould, Lemonwire

"He finds the sweet spot where real muso ears will appreciate his guitar excursions. A tasty outing throughout, it certainly sates the need for something out of the ordinary but not too way out."

Chris Spector, Midwest Record

"Mody is a very skilled composer whose colorful originals develop as they evolve, taking listeners to unexpected places. His music often features dense grooves behind the soloists, along with a purposeful forward momentum."

Scott Yanow, Jazz journalist/historian and author of 11 books including The Great Jazz Guitarists, The Jazz Singers and Jazz On Record 1917-76
