“… vocalist Sachal Vasandani put on an exhibition of scat singing that would have done justice to a virtuoso trumpeter. Taking a consciously instrumental approach to the art of rattling off notes as random syllables, Vasandani chiseled out long wordless runs across a dynamic range evocative of a trumpeter playing fast and loose with his mute. But the singer also left no doubt he could also flat-out sing.” – Detroit News
