“….a mesmerizing mix of West African and Afro-Cuban traditions with contemporary jazz, a grounding of vivid percussion supporting melodies that are both anthemic and tuneful.” – Jon Garelick, Downbeat – 4 Stars ****
“Led by the drummer and composer Francisco Mora-Catlett, AfroHORN seeks a mystical but earthy vision of rhythm and folklore, inspired not only by Afro-Cuban music but also the Sun Ra Arkestra, in which Mr. Mora-Catlett played in the 1970s.” – The New York Times
“Conceived while Mexican-American drummer Francisco Mora-Catlett was living and working with Sun Ra, Afro Horn infuses Cuban rhythms with an avant-garde sensibility more oriented toward transcendence than disassociation. It grooves hard….” – The Village Voice
