“Allen Lowe is the tradition; he is one of the few musicians doing anything new today.” -Anthony Braxton
“ Allen Lowe is a genius! His work is always full of wonder, the excitement of discovery, and humor…the best work has always been done at the margins, by the so-called underground – Poe, Whitman, Monk, Harvey Pekar, Herbie Nichols, James Joyce, Sun Ra – but it’s still a surprise and a revelation whenever you find it.” -John Szwed, Columbia University Jazz Studies
