#1 Jazz album of 2012, Earshot! Online.
"…His songwriting is sharp…" - François Couture (Monsieur Deliré)
"…reminds this listener of the halcyon days of the 1970s when the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Julius Hemphill and Henry Threadgill first entered my consciousness" - Richard B. Kamins (Step Tempest)
The Craig Pedersen Quartet’s debut full-length album, Days Like Today is the follow-up to their much-acclaimed Early Winter EP. Inspired by the music of John Zorn, the AACM, Ornette Coleman, and Duke Ellington, the new album contains ten tracks of original music that walk the distance between approachable and challenging. Freewheeling, energetic, and just-a-little crazy, the music keeps you listening, thinking and on your toes.
