The Build is a seriously cool record. It’s well produced, the right level of complex, engaging, and most of all, funky as hell. Its charms are destined to make an impact on nearly all who sample it, and it’s a damn fine uplift for these times of uncertainty.

Ashley Jacob –

Out here in the Utah desert, earth melts into water, heat melts into sky, and creatures melt into the sublime spaciousness of the land. Thor Madsen’s new album is a good match to this—sublime, elemental, deliberate, boundary-less. I played “The Gate” on my show the other day, and it was the perfect soundtrack to the shimmery heat of high noon.

Josie Kovash – KZMU Moab

I must say that this is some of most adventurous and inventive modern jazz I’d heard is awhile. I’ve chosen 5 cuts for airplay. Just great!

Russ Davis – Jazz America

Incredible soundscape textures going on! This has a grooving retro/funk/soul jazz fusion interesting vibe. It’s familiar and different at the same time. It’s that duality that drew me in.
