“Three important contributors to Toronto's improvised music community - Bill Gilliam (piano), Kayla Milmine (soprano saxophone) and Ambrose Pottie (drums) - combine in this trio. While their exploration of free improvisation is impressive, what hooked me was the composing - their interesting melodies always create a home base from which the soloing departs and, ultimately, returns”
Josh Grossman, TD Toronto Jazz Festival artistic director.
