“[the album] moves indistinctly between melody and total improvisation, like a work of theatre with a continually changing set.” Juan Antonio Serrano Cervantes (Zona de Jazz)

“Gran Masa’s debut album is a confounding and complex collision of sounds – whilst it’s grounded in improvised jazz there are also touches of math-rock, prog and out there experimentalism. Covering a wide-ranging sound palette, much of it pushing the boundaries of composition, Gran Masa occupy a distinctive and idiosyncratic space of their own.” – RTRFM Radio Australia
