"Top 10 2004" - Robert Iannapollo, Cadence

Conference Call's third release catches them live at B-Flat in Berlin, Germany on March 11th, 2003.  The material features compositions from each musician in this all-star group's line-up, including the versatile Schuller who replaces Matt Wilson and Han Bennink respectively from the band's first two recordings.

Musicians: Gebhard Ullmann (bassclarinet, tenor and soprano saxophone), Michael Jefry Stevens (piano), Joe Fonda (bass), George Schuller (drums, cymbals, bells)

"Conference Call is making some amazing music under everybody‚Äôs radar." — Cadence

"Everyone sounds like they were on and Ullmann is in particularly fiery form (especially on soprano). While their first two albums had much to recommend them, Spirals is their finest album yet." — Signal to Noise

"Decidedly on the free side of modern jazz, the quartet plays with great dynamics, moving from a whisper to a roar and back again. They clearly know how to build excitement, and it's easy to just get lost in their music." — IAJRC Journal
