"Throughout, McAll's improvisational excursions are dynamic and emotive." -quite frankly we couldn't agree more!
And there was a review of the live performance...
"The most powerful impression came from New York-based Australian pianist Barney McAll. His visionary new work Graft (featuring two pianos, vibraphone and a 16-voice choir) combined soulful grooves, electronics, ethereal harmonies and exquisite lyricism". Sydney Morning Herald.
