"Saxophonist Peter Fraize's quartet makes it clear throughout Organic Matter that this is the 21st rather than the 20th century." "Easily recommended." (Scott Yanow, review of Organic Matter)

“Seabrook has been touring extensively with this band and it shows. Audiences have liked their music and it’s easy to see why.” (Jazzwise.com, review of Sketches of Miles)

This was arguably the best concert I have heard in Gateshead Town Hall since Sonny Stitt took it apart in the 1960s...” (Bebop Spoken Here, review of Milestones concert)

Flashbacks to the be-bop era and Miles' later experiments with jazz-funk were all spectacularly demonstrated by this tremendous band.” (Nottingham Post, review of Milestones concert)

“Terry Seabrook's band is The king of Cuban jazz-fusion utilizing the intricacies of the form and its open harmonic possibilities to kick up a riot on their sharp originals. Something of a finishing school for many a burgeoning and established talent.” (Jazzwise.com, review of Now Hear This)
