"If the news hasn't reached you, then listen up! Philadelphia-based saxophonist Ben Schachter is one of the sharpest improvisers in modern jazz."
AllAboutJazz



"...the power of...Dave Holland...or Steve Coleman...the authority of Joe Lovano..."
Cadence



"...Ben Schachter's Trio of Many is working on a new style of freedom and democracy."
JazzTimes



"...advanced harmonic capabilities and fluid, sure-fire rhythmic drive....a personal and present-tense sound."
Philadelphia CityPaper



"...Schachter writes peppery tunes that tapdance on the subconscious before his searing saxophone takes over to blow down the house."
Philadelphia Inquirer



"...artistic prowess...reams of finely-honed phrases that contain a trace of lyricism within their full-bodied texture."
Cadence



"...a highly personalized style...beautifully arranged interludes offset by passages of boundless improvising...something special is happening here."
JazzImprov



"...has a fire in his soul that he vents through angular, topsy-turvy modified bop explosions."
Philadelphia CityPaper

MagnaPhone Magazine / Trout

His explorations cannot be summed up
I truly love the music of Ben Schachter and what he is doing with Jazz. Whether he is with Trio of Many(Inside Looking Out) or the Sung/Unsung combo(The Missing Beloved), his explorations cannot be summed up, or even really reviewed for that matter, in any sort of capsule form.

Any lover of Coltrane, Coleman, or Sun Ra should pick up his whole catalog as this man is keeping the tradition alive. He refers to his compositions as "listening to his own sounds" and I think that is the best description. He holds court at the Highwire Gallery every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month. Come fly with him.
