"Through no fault of his own, Allen Lowe has become jazz’s quintessential outsider artist."
"Allen Lowe is an American master. I was absolutely astonished by the new CD. The CD blew me away -- the compositional transitions, the liner notes -- Allen Lowe is a great writer. It's hillbilly music but it's trans-national. Allen Lowe is one of the few musicians doing anything new today. He is the tradition. I'm a big fan of Allen Lowe and I think as a musician and a scholar he is very important and I think he is deeply misunderstood because he doesn't hate himself."
- Anthony Braxton
