"The Buzz!!"

“…close-to-perfect representation of what jazz can be in 2009. Ulery went out of his way to ensure that absolutely no stone went unturned in creating just the right texture for these songs. Ulery and his group are creating new jazz on their terms.”

-Chicago Jazz Magazine - Chicago Jazz Magazine


"Matt Ulery's LOOM"

“Points with conviction to a new generation of Chicago jazz innovators. A polished and impressive debut.”

-Neil Tesser, Chicago Reader - Neil Tesser, Chicago Reader


"Matt Ulery's LOOM"

"It has the melancholy beauty of something ravishing but out-of-season. And it is quite moving.
This CD is an unexpected surprise and quite absorbing listening. Ulery plays a distinctive bass and writes with originality. The ensemble has a unique sound and covers plenty of ground."

-Cadence Magazine - Cadence Magazine


"Matt Ulery's LOOM"

"...delightfully difficult to classify, this music has the distinction of being both saturated with musical integrity and extremely accessible and listenable. the textures and sonorities available to him are plentiful, and he takes ample advantage, with colors, timbres and textrues coming at you from everywhere. Very often the band sounds larger than it is."

-reviewed by Chris Kosky, Bass World, the magazine of the International Society of Bassists - Bass World


"Matt Ulery's LOOM"

"(Music Box Ballerina) could be a soundtrack for dreams, with moments of supremely haunting beauty amidst glorious textures. This is composition and ensemble playing at a truly mature and satisfying level."
