Melodicism and freedom don’t often go hand in hand, but guitarist Garrison Fewell is carving out a niche for himself where such a pairing seems inevitable.
John Sharpe, AllAboutJazz-New York

Good band balance, nice themes (not all Fewell’s; Hofbauer, Campbell and Swell contribute; John Tchicai too), fine production...Sound Particle 47 could become addictive.
François Couture, Monsieur Délire

Garrison Fewell's second album with his tumultuous gang of horn-blowers and noisemakers is a jubilant cacophony that compromises absolutely nothing!
John Garratt, PopMatters.com

This is advanced ensemble improvisation that begins where Mingus's larger ensemble works leave off and takes the music to further outposts and way stations in the realm of new sounds. Sound Particle 47 brings to you an uncompromising look at what thoughtful compositions and intelligent improvisation can do when built up by a very talent group of musicians. This is a first-rate performance of cuttingly acute music. Definitely recommended for an excellent example of what is gong on right now.
Grego Applegate Edwards, Gapplegate Guitar and Bass Blog

It’s a formidable ensemble essaying memorable contributions with unusual formal structures that keep the improvisers on their toes...a complete program that holds together like a suite.
Robert Iannapollo, Signal to Noise
