  • an expressive new-breed fusion, informed by a few generations of downtown experimentation. - Nate Chinen, New York Times 

  • Parker hones a seductive, burnished tone that's animated by conversational improvisations. - John Murph Downbeat Magazine

  •   Parker’s trombone style is both traditional and new, augmented by a cybernetic array of electronics. - Josh Feola, Tiny Mix Tapes

  • Parker's intricately arranged pieces cull an impressively large sound from a small group. - Shaun Brady, Philadelphia Daily News

  • Subdued and consistently expressive trombone performances. Mike Joyce, The Washington Post

  • Parker wins bonus points for taking some calculated risks and always landing on his feet. - Mark Holston, Jazziz Magazine

  • Parker's trombone sound is electronically modified in a way that many would say resembles Miles Davis' plugged-in sounds of the mid-1970s. But that's just the surface. Really, what Parker is doing here, primarily with chorus effects and digital delays, is much more akin to the work of J. A. Deane and Jon Hassell. - Dave Wayne, All About Jazz
