About Jim Whitney:



- JazzTimes


"... masterful subtlety"

- Lucid Culture


"...sublimely elastic"

- Boston Globe


"A pupil of Dave Holland early on, he learned well from the master and took things forward into his own dimension..."

- Midwest Jazz Record



About the Dodecahedron album:


"...has crime-jazz echoes and a sardonically spring-loaded groove..."

- Lucid Culture


"Certainly not aiming to create pretty music for the people, this is an adventurous set that explores the possibilities (of) the stand-up bass..."

- Midwest Jazz Record
