REVIEWS

"...73 minutes of inarguable if alien beauty. Conjuring acts abound in these live improvisations. Repeated listenings invoked a decaying calliope, a sitar sounding inside a steel drum, an amplified Slinky, monkey cries, and John Fahey playing on Mars, to name only a few impressions. 'Locusts Looking Like Men' is a pocket encyclopedia of his fantastic abilities, from the intimations of tabla and double bass to the ringing, bell-like overtones; amazing to think this was done in one take." -- CODA magazine

"Coco Bolo Nights (named after the Brazilian wood from which Reichel has exquisitely crafted his latest creations...) lays bare every nuance and momentary roughness in the performance, every exotic resonance in the instruments. Not that it’s a matter of delicacy and/or outlandishness of timbre; having invented a new guitar-based sound-source, Reichel brings to beat on it not only a virtuosity absent in most players of instruments with whole traditions of technique behind them, but also a fine ear for its compositional potential." -- The Wire
