the debut album from bassist Daniel Fortin

“Here’s a record that does what a good record is supposed to do. It creates a sound-space all of its own, indivisible, difficult to define by reference to anything else, endlessly revisitable.”
Brian Morton, Jazz Journal (UK)

“Fortin’s compositions throughout the album are sharp, clever, have depth, take journeys, yet never veer so far into uncomfortable territory. Yes, in his debut album as a leader, Daniel Fortin has made a quite good collection of songs with this quartet in Brinks.”
-Anthony Dean-Harris, Nextbop                                                                                                   

“…a program rich in melody, alive with interaction, and smart solos.”
-Richard B. Kamins, Step Tempest
