“An ambitious and sophisticated venture, with composition and freedom elegantly poised.”
– Guardian, John Fordham

“With Evolution Smith has made a clear step forward with some of the most compelling charts of his career—and a group that, with but a single evening to rehearse, infuses them with sensitivity and life.”
– All About Jazz, John Kelman
