"His urgent playing and blistering sense of improvisation on uptempo tracks 'Like Rashaan' ....has a lot of the retro soul sensibilities that drive that genre." -- Jonathan Widran, All Music Guide (AMG)
"Mullen's sax is urgent, intense and ultra-expressive."-- Ronald Jackson, Jazzreview.com
"He can easily fit in with a style similar to David Sanborn, but can get more bop-friendly in a Michael Brecker fashion, without losing any strength in either," - by da bookman Buzz Grinder music news.
"David Mullen on tenor and soprano saxes comes equally from the Dave Sanborn and Gato Barbieri schools of phrasing and rhythmic pulse, and has a melodic sensibility on par with Stan Getz as a young musician," said Tom Jurek, All Music Guide (AMG).
A wonderful project that includes must titles written by Mullen, and an excellent re-make of Stevie Wonder's "As"...and I love the "Like Rashaan" ..."It's apparent that Dave Has been influenced by some of the best. A great CD that could change the direction of modern Jazz," said Ray Boyd - Director of Global Programing - WorldSpace Corporation.
