The music of The Microscopic Septet is the sound of jazz in 20th century America: all of it, from Ellington to Ayler, bebop to Zorn, Dixieland to experimental, captured in a microcosm. It distills the essence of jazz as a popular music into a sound that swings, a music that is intelligent, sometimes smart aleck, and always good fun. [Joyce Nalewajk]

In 2009 Cuneiform Records released Lobster Leaps In, the first newly recorded Microscopic Septet CD since the late 1980s. Here is what critics had to say:


Downbeat: "As always with the Micros, it's gloriously, delightfully and inappropriately right. Welcome back."

Jazziz: "...brings a renewed sense of fun to the often-humorless jazz milieu."

AllAboutJazz: "Packed with soaring melodies, jubilant riffs, joyous shout choruses, infectious rhythms and incisive solos, Lobster Leaps In is the most fun one can have listening to contemporary jazz."

The Philadelphia Inquirer: ... swinging, infectious, and full of wit."
