This is powerful stuff. It’s powerful and throws a punch like it means it. But there’s a flow to this music, a lumbering, yet effortless grace to accompany the brutality. (Dave Sumner, Bird is the Worm)

Like Sonny Sharrock’s touchstone Ask The Ages… Dorr unleashes a brutal and blustery aural overload on Blood that floors the punk, metal, and funk-jazz pedal into high gear. (Brad Cohen, Brooklyn Rail)

…the music does have that earlier Blood Ulmer-like jazz/rock/funk/punk demon drive! This is jazz-rock at its best and it rocks hard… (Bruce Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery)

This band has a meaty, weighty sound and drive like a freight train. It sits in a comfortable spot between John Zorn’s saxophone based rock-jazz groups and the harmolodics of Prime Time. (George Grella, New York City Jazz Record)

Welf Dorr pilots this exciting multinational quartet through hardcore jazz fusion, funk, and detours into the solar system … executed with tenacity and forthright intentions. (Glenn Astarita, AllAboutJazz)
