Single Moment is another outstanding Fred Hess Band effort.

Dan McClenaghan - All About Jazz

Hess is a likably unpredictable composer - he's absorbed a lot of the jazz continuum, and listening to his music can evoke images of Charles Mingus dropping Ornette Coleman off of a cliff, for example.

Bret Saunders - Denver Post

Reworking the tradition from his own unique perspective, Hess avoids radical deconstructions of standard material, choosing instead to deal with these tunes as venerable classics. An incisive set that spans the history of jazz, this date sheds new light on Hess' abilities as an arranger and interpreter, rather than his deft skills as a soloist, making Single Moment his most accessible and refined recording.

Troy Collins - All About Jazz
