Touching Extremes reviews On Parade in Parede

“Finally, there’s a certain drummer who drives everything firmly while setting a few nice traps from which a musician can escape after getting caught. Not a hint of egotism in sight, the drums merely one of the four colors. Lest one forgets, it is he who wrote this damn fine stuff.” – Massimo Ricci

On Parade in Parede reviewed in The Whole Note

“Among Eisenstadt’s numerous ensembles, Canada Day may be the most traditional and also the loosest: its sprung rhythms (suggesting African and Latin roots) and clipped themes recall the early music of Ornette Coleman, while the individual and collective voices of the band sound like they were just invented.” – Stuart Broomer
