"Music Minus One takes the educational approach to jazz playing much like their approach to classical music; surround yourself with upper echelon musicians and you can start sounding like them. The arrangements... are swinging, clever and intricate enough that you will definitely develop your ear while playing with these guys. The format of hearing your own part, and then playing the tune with your chance to sit in gives you something to aspire to sound and concept-wise. [...] I enjoyed the feeling of playing with these guys. Ah, dreams that come true!"
