Clive Griffin of Jazz Improv Magazine says of the band, "What is abundantly clear is that each of the members of the Atlantis Quartet are highly skilled musicians who have invested themselves heavily to develop their individual approaches...together, they sound genuinely inspired."
Animal Progress is the second album from this exciting group. The record features 12 original compositions spanning many styles of jazz, from blistering tempo swing to straight eighth groove, free and timeless tone poems to multi-meter compositions. Critics are raving about this new record, already making its way into top albums of the year.
Rick Mason calls Animal Progress the "full blossoming of a signature Atlantis sound that taps historic elements like swing, bop, and free jazz while referencing contemporary bits of funk, rock, and world music, then rolls it all into a cohesive bundle of kinetic energy with the visceral allure of intense fireworks and the intellectual challenge of multilayered complexity."
