"Precipieces... features some rockish guitar shredding and backbeats, Latin rhythms, odd meters worthy of Frank Zappa or Mr. Bungle, and other non-standard angularities, along with more familiar jazz improvisation and grooves... Yet the offbeat combinations never feel forced or self-consciously avant-garde... Precipieces bountifully blends a diverse band of Portland jazzers... into a tight, wide-ranging ensemble that can snag listeners across the jazz-rock spectrum with its singular groove."
-- Brett Campbell, Willamette Week (May 2014)
"The FQ’s debut album “Precipieces” mixes Latin, soul and fusion in an intoxicating mix of modern jazz that would appeal to fans of everyone from Pat Metheny to Primus, Bjork to “Porgy and Bess.”"
-- Rob Cullivan, Portland Tribune (May 2014)
