"Dizzyingly virtuosic [with] exquisite musicianship and world-class range."


                                    -The Free Times


"Lorry Black bridges the world of classical and rock percussion, a drumming evangelist," and Popham has Mozart's gift of musical composition.”


“...no wonder the Helix Collective can hold down a monthly engagement at the Silverlake Lounge."


-Captain Art Walk

“The Helix Collective obviously had fun with this program and meet its various challenges and interpretive vagaries with the steadiness and unanimity of professionals who have managed to blend into a true ensemble. These are very enjoyable performances.”


“...the program has a little something for everyone: those who like their classics straight up, with a contemporary edge to it, or with populist appeal.”


“—recommended for fine musicianship and beyond-the-ordinary programming.”

              

           -Lee Passarella, Audiophile Audition

Helix Collective creates compelling, insistent, thoroughly modern music with a resolutely acoustic (even proudly classical) band of kick-ass outsider oboe, flute, piano, and drum virtuosi.” “


“Usually instrumental albums fit into a clearly defined genre....This one just does it's own thing. And that thing is unique.”


“These are great musicians producing something that I guarantee you've never heard before-- lively, joyous, surprising and throughly entertaining music, a unique take on what a dance band can be, what a flute or oboe can do, and what classical music itself is”


                                -Dan Cohen, Muse’s Muse


“If there is a book about how to make an appealing CD, the Helix Collective have surely read it.”


“[Popham's ‘The Pharmacy’] is a piece any trio would love to do and any audience would love to hear.”


               -Gorman, American Record Guide
