[This] 12 O'Clock Track is a superbuoyant, hard-swinging gem called "Orange Poppies," where the rhythm section provides agile, swift support for [Aram] Shelton's tart alto saxophone, which hurtles over the grooves without a misstep. At times there's no missing the melodic brightness of Ornette Coleman, but Shelton has his own sound, flush with wild intervallic leaps, and flecked by sudden upper-register squeals and percussive honks. It's a remarkable performance. —Peter Margasak, 2014
