"There would certainly seem to be the potential for more fine music to come from this talented trio."
"“Circularity” represents the work of a world class quartet with Arguelles and his colleagues still at the peak of their creative powers. "
"A very good album that is packed with strong tunes, imaginative arrangements and some excellent playing, both individually and collectively. "
"An excellent album that impresses with the quality of both the writing and the playing and ranks right up there with Arguelles' best work"
"The writing is rich and melodic, sometimes complex but always engaging, and the standard of playing from all four musicians is exceptional. Another milestone in Arguellesâ€™ glittering career."
