REVIEW: "A mix of funk, rock, fusion, and more was highlighted by Petrillo's many skills on drums, playing tightly in conjunction with his band. His connectivity with bassist Scott Ambush is stellar and created a powerful platform for the band to swing from. Petrillo and the band are masterful." ALL ABOUT JAZZ 4 Stars.
