“Worth a good deal of anyone’s time... Sensitive and well thought-out, the album’s a vital addition to the already substantial body of Braxton material on CD.”
—Will Montgomery, The Wire

“A boldly successful collaboration”
—Bob Blumenthal, The Boston Globe

“... [V]ital and absorbing... Jump or Die grabs your attention ... and doesn’t let go. These players have not only captured the spirit of Braxton’s music, they have absorbed it and made it into something of their own. Anyone with even a passing interest in the exhilarating possibilities still open to improvised music owes it to themselves to check this out.”
—Michael Rosenstein, Cadence Magazine
