Richard Scheinin calls Four MFsone of the best jazz albums of 2012 (so far). “Look out! The saxophonist’s long-standing quartet is newly juiced by Justin Faulkner, its young 46-limbed drummer.” -San Jose Mercury News
Doug Ramsey says “Marsalis is at his peak here…” -Rifftides
“…the album is a knockout: hard nosed and hyperacute, tradition minded but modern, defined by the high-wire grace of his working band.” -Nate Chinen, New York Times
