“I'm not sure if it's possible for Japhy Ryder to be underrated or overlooked. They've been around for more than 10 years, have long had a strong following and inspired one of my all-time-favorite genre descriptors: "porn prog." The tag isn't as fitting as it once was, but I can't seem to stop using it. Yet for some reason, when I think about the best bands in Burlington, JR are rarely one of the first to jump to mind. They should be. Their Friday set was a master clinic on sinewy, sensuous grooves and intricate, cerebral compositions. Despite that heady and often scholarly approach, JR somehow manage never to fly above their listeners' heads. Their stuff is still accessible and emotionally evocative — in large part thanks to the sensitivity and skill with which bandleader and trumpeter Will Andrews plays. I could listen to that guy play all night.”
