From Jordan Adams' album review in Seven Days:
"McCarthy's pointillism of personal influence results in a hefty, satisfying record that offers new perspective on the composer as a person. McCarthy's densely packed arrangements will likely serve hungry audiences new aural morsels with every listen.
"CODEX is available at brianmccarthyjazz.com. The Brian McCarthy Quartet performs on Saturday, December 2, at the FlynnSpace in Burlington."
Brian McCarthy is affiliate artist of classical and jazz saxophone at the University of Vermont. He also teaches and conducts the Jazz Orchestra and Wind Ensemble at St. Michael's College.
