Press for Old Time Musketry's "Different Times"

Old Time Musketry's debut album "Different Times" is starting to get some reviews, and good ones at that!

“2012 Best Debut…a first statement full of promise…enjoyable and intriguing…”
–George Grella, The Big City Blog

“…the most exciting music looks back yet continually moves forward. Different Times does just that and more; Old Time Musketry makes joyful music filled with strong melodies and fine solos. “
–Richard B. Kamins, Step Tempest Blog

“…this year’s best jazz debut by a country mile. Melodic contemporary sounds don’t get any more interesting, or downright catchy, than this.”
Lucid Culture Blog (also ranked #14 on their 20 Best Jazz Albums of 2012 List)

“3 1/2 stars…tight group interplay…reserved melodies [that] build slowly with stately tension.”
–Paul Acquaro, Free Jazz Blog
