"Katisse will always be, for our money, the greatest jazz flutist under the sun."
“I just want to say how much I dug this record! Nobody's doing any shit like this.”
Multi Grammy-winning Billy Childs
“This is a breath of fresh air.”
"Katisse’s genre-crossing fusion of jazz and hip-hop is definitely worth the hype."
”Katisse Buckingham leads a double musical life, most often as one of the area's most sought-after woodwind players. But on the last Thursday of every month, he leads his own band in a unique mix of jazz, soul, hip-hop & rap, beatboxing his way through flutes and leaving even seasoned studio veterans often in astonishment.”
Tom Meek - LA Jazz.com

"This album has re-insipired me to enjoy music listening. I put it on for the energy, the great writing, playing, and gorgeous singing. The harmonic and rhythmic brain food always keeps me interested. Now, having listened to it a bunch of times, the words are sinking in. They're complex, up, open and positive. Katisse has poured his heart and soul into this record. Thank you for this great work of art, Katisse!"
