"Unfailingly fresh, incalculable and rewarding, Peripheral Vision is giving jazz the swift kick in the pants that it needs." - S. Victor Aaron, Something Else!

"Peripheral Vision displays an amazing cohesion of sound as they cut a wide harmonic path that perhaps only a dozen other bands in North America could touch. Gernres are transcended and boundaries are smashed." - criticaljazz.com

Dominated by lively counterpoint...with constantly shifting and inventive underpinnings." - Downbeat Magazine

"This outfit produces jazz for this century… all the material has something to say, propelled with elegant momentum and hearty rations of dynamic interplay." - Geoff Chapman, The Wholenote

Top Ten Canadian Jazz Albums 2011:
"Peripheral Vision are making exacting but emotional music that nimbly relays complexity in a heady but appealing way, and with Spectacle: Live!, they demonstrate that they can pull off their magic in real-time." - Peter Hum, The Ottawa Citizen

★★★★ The Globe and Mail
"Although the writing is colourful and evocative, and the improvisations so tuneful they sound like compositions, what really sets this Toronto quartet apart in its second album is the confidence of the playing, which exhibits the sort of semi-telepathic communication you'd expect from musicians who had been together for a decade, not just a year or so." - J.D. Considine, The Globe and Mail

"This group has tremendous cohesive power, a storehouse of original ideas delivered with gusto and confidence. Each piece is a musical statement combining beauty and impact." - Irwin Block

"…one of Toronto's most promising Jazz groups… What I find most satisfying about Peripheral Vision is their ability to stretch far rhythmically and harmonically, while remaining rooted in beautiful, sing-able melodies."
Hugh Kilpatrick - The Purple Cabbage
