The Laurence Hobgood Trio with ETHEL string quartet 

"Two impressive things stand out: how enormous his arrangements make the string quartet sound, and how fluidly these seven musicians blend together." - Giovanni Russonello, New York Times 

"Hobgood's orchestration definitely brings a classical element to the project, while the trio's shining interactions represent the very idea that jazz improvisation is less about what's being played and more about how it's being played." Jazziz Magazine   

"Hobgood has produced here an exceptional debut album for the ever-burgeoning Ubuntu Music label, which augurs very well indeed both for the pianist and the record company." - Roger Farby, All About Jazz 

"Laurence Hobgood's new album is grounded in a deep and rich musicality that rewards frequent and multiple listenings like nothing I've heard in decades. It is at different times surprising, thought-provoking, nuanced, and always exquisite . . . tesseterra should be on every station and streaming services playlists for years to come."  - Daniel J. Levitin, Author, "This Is Your Brain On Music"
