“Jazz’s fusion with rock is often overlooked... but Work Friends is a clear case for that scene to get more attention and listeners... Work Friends stands out in their own way—a way that lies in the nuances of the improvising, compositions, approaches and so much more, a way that is sometimes as hard to put words to as it is warming.” - Izzy Yellen, Meditations on Music
