For the Ensemble

the comma tour was... dynamic... energizing -- Morrie Green

How avant garde! We loved the show. We would love to have a copy of "dancing into the millennium"... (I miss) you doing your thing more... -- Twyla Grace

...wild shit, man... -- Rod Stryker

For Comma

"Three musicians 'meet' in performance, and the result falls outside the traditional concert - it is vocal theater, a celebration of the voice as a direct line to all the apparitions and emotions that make up experience... sentence fragments, repeated syllables, seductive hisses, whispers are the language of populations, ancient and familiar." -- Anne Pierce, Washington Review

"...bizarre and challenging..." -- Downtown Music Gallery

"Comma commits poetry in the spirit of a jazz ensemble. The works on the disc don't begin with a poem or lyrics in the traditional sense. They begin with a process, a game, a space to play in... The CD is a beautiful demonstration of the belief that poetry is not just about meaning, but about the emotion, space, and mood that can be created just by how sound collides and mixes. --The Word: the monthly guide to the arts in Dallas, October 1998

For Question Authority, the

rocking the modish Dallas music scene with an instrument-free band -- The Met (Dallas)

...so she's sitting there watching the videotape of our last show, and she's got this kinda pained 'I-am-looking-at-art' face on, and finally after a few minutes she asks 'Is this supposed to be... um... funny?' and I say 'Yes!' and she says ,'Oh, good!' and grins and chortles through the rest of the set...
