"...(Mitchell's) flute playing is perhaps less well documented than his other reeds, and it is that frail but hard-edged sound which is most to be treasured here."
(source: The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD)

"...Mitchell's soprano extracts and absorbs life-giving moistness, purely according to need, from the rich sonic sea provided by Abrams's synthesizer, much as the pelican, skimming the surface of the ocean just above the water, deftly scoops up the odd bit of nourishment."
(source: from the CD's liner notes by Prof. George E. Lewis)
