"Superbly recorded at Parkwest Studios in Brooklyn, Floating Ice is a revealing portrait of two master improvisers engaged in spontaneous discourse, with every nuance of their attentive interplay captured in minute detail. A testament to their shared chemistry, this session suggests the beginning of a long and fruitful collaboration." - Troy Collins (All About Jazz)
"They play music with the structure and heft of composition, but it's spontaneous. That is remarkable.
These are two at the top of the era and they behave like it on this wonderful disk. It's beyond category. Avant, sure. But essential no matter what you call it. Piano-bass duets? Call it that. This is our music today and they are making some of the best!" - Grego Applegate Edwards
"On "Supernova" a rich, haunting web-like section has Matt playing these majestic chords while Michael bows gorgeous harmonies underneath. The total effect is most mesmerizing. From the beginning to the end, this is an outstanding disc that works well on all levels." - Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery
