“[…] or, when saxophonist Sha steps out, like an acoustic version of Weather Report riffing off the theme to The Twilight Zone.”

Jim Fusilli, Wall Street Journal (2011)

 

“His sax offers up soaring notes of purest silver.”

Sid Smith, www.bbc.co.uk (2010)

 

“Looking like an off-duty paratrooper with his khaki combat trousers bloused into his boots, reed player, Sha, provides a sinuous connective tissue with Bartsch or Meyer’s melodic lines, that seems comprised of parping slaps and guttural rasps on the contrabass clarinet which provide a form of rhythmic ping-pong. Occasionally, or soaring, sustained alto sax notes are carefully deployed sending ripples across the surface. ”

“Whenever the monosyllabically named Sha steps into the spotlight, the reed player evokes the modal improvisations of musicians like John Coltrane and Jan Garbarek.”
Brent Burton, Washington City Paper (2008)
