"Mike Pride & Jonathan Moritz have spent many years playing together in various combinations and their close relationship comes through on The Invitation, an intimate, intense & searching duo record that attempts to redefine what a saxophone and drums duo record can sound like. The sounds are stranger and cover a wider spectrum than usual in such a duo, Pride's percussion sounding more like Famoudou Don Moye than Rashied Ali with his assorted percussive arsenal of vibraphone, glockenspiel, bells, shakers, and much more, while Moritz's controlled yet exploratory extended techniques on saxophone eschew the expected and provide an incredible foil."-Astral Spirits
