A 2013 Guggenheim Fellow, Melford was described by the San Francisco Chronicle as an “explosive player, a virtuoso who shocks and soothes, and who can make the piano stand up and do things it doesn’t seem to have been designed for.” Meanwhile, Goldberg has established himself as “one of the most vibrant, flexible, and inventive clarinetists in jazz and improvised music,” says Downbeat, and “an artist who seems to find beautiful melodies at the end of every path,” according to NPR.
