“Hagedorn and Cavanagh move "through the music like mirror images, a musical yin and yang, the whole greater than the sum of its parts...a stunner"”
“Horizon is a "sonic stunner on which Cavanagh and Hagedorn sound like twins...sublime."”
“...intricate, complex, and rich. This has been done before, but in this case I was especially impressed and moved...”
“Dan Cavanagh makes his recording debut as a leader with this striking big-band date...This auspicious debut should open doors for [him]. 4/5 stars.”
"I love what Dan is doing with the meeting of the spoken word and jazz ensemble. The idea of music as a language is often overlooked but poets have known it for a long time. The phrasings, articulations and rhythms are very apparently connected if one just takes the time to listen. Keep on!"
"...one of the most satisfying young composers on the scene right now."
