- NYTimes Review: Antonio Sánchez With 2 Albums,‘The Meridian Suite’ and ‘Three Times Three’: "Inspired by the seamless continuity of “Birdman” as it is experienced by the
viewer, Mr. Sánchez composed an hourlong suite, covering an expanse of
styles in one unbroken arc. He wrote with his collaborators in mind: Seamus
Blake on tenor saxophone and EWI (electronic wind instrument), John
Escreet on acoustic and Fender Rhodes piano, and Mr. Brewer on acoustic and
electric bass. Joining the ensemble at times are the guitarist Adam Rogers and
the vocalist Thana Alexa, Mr. Sánchez’s wife."

"To say it is diluted is to say it's not so memorable, and to me that's a contradiction."
