"Magnificent, very unique, and strongly recommended." - All Music Guide

"Bill Dixon is one of the most under-looked figures in 20th century jazz. 'Berlin Abbozzi' defines the sound of a master at his peak." - Dia Pa Zon

"An excellent disc easily recommended to anyone willing to immerse themselves in Bill Dixon’s sound world." -John Sharpe, All About Jazz

"In an age where stylistic pastiche and clever craftsmanship are often confused with a genuine synthesis of elements, it is refreshing to hear music so idiomatically unfettered. The three pieces unfold with a great sense of purpose; what is even more remarkable is their profound grace, their transparency. It is music which invents itself moment-by-moment, with remarkable clarity." -Andrew Lindstrom, All About Jazz
