"(Low Profile) is one of the most expressive, unpredictable albums of the year. The balance between written and improvised sections is perfect, the transitions seamless despite all the quirkinessas a leader he exercises an inspiring vision"
-Jazz Times

"Mr. Formanek, on bass, has solid intonation, riffing hard and engaging horns and drums in genuinely melodic counterpoint."
-New York Times
