Review of Panyard Vibrations by by Maia Cheli-Colando in the Arcata Eye, June 28, 2005

...Having now played the new CD nearly 20 rounds in the last week, I am pleased to report that the recording is indeed very well done. Recorded live over two nights, Panyard Vibrations is not only a vibrant album; it proves that it is still possible to explore dynamic range and subtlety in a digital format.

...Part of what intrigues me about the steel drum band is their ability to move deftly between pianissimo and fortissimo, simultaneously playful and precise. It is as if they are storytellers, carefully laying each step of the plot before the giant explodes through the door.

...There is something about pan music that reassures me that the world is still good and full of delight, perhaps that is why "Do What Yuh Want" is my favorite piece on this recording: it resonates in my bones with a call to release, to celebrate. I find it awfully hard, even after 20 repeats, not to get up and dance.
