To quote from an article of Village Voice, pianist Russ Lossing is "a gripping improviser, pulling ideas out of the air and nudging them into the action at hand as if they always belonged there". Here the improviser/composer Lossing devotes the whole album to a collection of new original compositions to create a powerfully impressive suite. "Russ Lossing, a talented pianist who has been active professionally for over three decades, found it easy to generate some fresh approaches to playing standards and time-tested jazz compositions, given his track record on earlier smallgroup record dates." - Ken Dryden, The New York City Jazz Record on 'Changes' (SCCD31863)

"Here's some nourishing refreshment, and it comes from a piano, bass and drums trio which, while working broadly within a continuum defined by Paul Bley and Bill Evans, carves out distinctive territory of its own." - Nic Jones, Jazz Journal on 'Changes'
