Raul da Gama review of Matrix
- "A delightfully swinging offering from a solid trio that swings, swings and then swings some more. But its not just the swing that makes this offering so engaging, it is the chemistry between the players, the technique and the joy you can hear in the interaction, pouring out from the notes."
EMusic.com review of Matrix
- "Filled with swinging solidarity, and the reimagined works of Johann Sebastian Bach, Dave Brubeck, Chick Corea, Bill Evans, George Gershwin, Herbie Hancock, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, The Fred Hughes trio delivers a stunning formula that will leave you humming the tunes long after the disc is done playing. Solid chemistry between the players, engages the listener to a deeper experience. Not just the standard fare, but a matrix of solid performances and fluidity of ideas."
