"What would you get if you melded a bit of Art Blakey to the imagination of Lester Bowie? You'd get trumpeter Eddie Allen " - Nancy Ann Lee, JazzTimes
"Allen's control of the timbers, from guttural moans to clarion peals, and his ability to squeeze whimpers out of brass and hurl them at the listener, marks him as a horn man to watch." - W. Royal Stokes, The Washington Post
