"This young trio ... were mighty impressive. Each member contributes a song or two with two covers by Monk and Lennie Tristano. The original songs are rather quirky and move in unexpected ways. The drummer's piece, "Vera", speeds up, slows down and then starts again with an unaccompanied sax section followed by a fine bass and drums duo. The bassist's song, "Flap Flap Soar" starts with wistful vocal harmonies before the tenor comes in a plays an out solo to a more melodic theme. Patrick plays some swaggering tenor on his own song, "Dreaming East", yet the tune starts & stops a few times, catching us off balance figuring out what will happen next. "Is It in You?" simmers in a laid back bluesy way with a dreamy melody that sounds vaguely familiar. It is rare to hear almost anyone covering songs by Lennie Tristano nowadays but this trio do a fine job with "317 East 32nd St." This piece has that controlled bebop vibe that Tristano and his collaborators specialized in. The trio strip the piece down to its parts with a strong bass solo midway which is followed by a tasty solo sax section. Monk's "Misterioso" slowed down and sped up in a unique way before the trio mutate into a different song which moves carefully in slow motion and then builds into soft yet burning conclusion. Sons of Daughters have found their own way of defining and making their trio into a distinctive force. I look forward to whatever they come up with next."

"They looked like they used words like “dig” and “hep” unironically. They played like their hands were on fire."
- David Fitzgerald, Athens Flagpole

What began as a chordless jazz trio evolved into a three-headed improvising monster. Breiner, Darrell, and Drobka each contribute compositions ranging from wistful rubato ballades to reckless free jazz avalanches.
