"Überjam is pure, unadulterated fusion. This album always has a jazz mentality -- Überjam is as spontaneous, free-spirited, and uninhibited as any bop session that was recorded in Rudy Van Gelder's studio in the '50s...yet another excellent album from an improviser who refuses to be predictable." -Alex Henderson, allmusic.com
