“Best of Jazz 2016"
"One of the most refreshing, melodic and successfully themed albums that I have heard this year comes from drummer Arthur Vint & Associates on his debut release Through the Badlands...clearly one that is highly recommended for those who love entertaining, expertly played music that straddles the seams between rock, country and jazz.”
“It’s one of the best amalgams of a musician’s favorite grooves, bound in one tight package. It’s probably jazz’s best hope for a future: fusion with limitless possibilities.”
“A different kind of drummer with a different kind of jazz...A swirling delight of sounds, this set is a solid bet for the open eared that are looking to the future.”
“Arthur Vint’s fortune as a drummer was built on a keen ear for instrumental sonority, a gift for writing appealing melodies and an instinct for rhythmic pulse and pacing... a masterfully conceived album.”
“Rhythmic invitations to sway and sweep you off your feet... A very smart, supremely enjoyable recording.”
"His composing is panoramic in a sound track sense, as if Ennio Morricone breathed in all of what originally defined the spaghetti western score and exhaled the fresh music here. [A] beautifully crafted western motif."
