about

"Impressive debut recording, an instrumental
album of much grace, some fire and many
moments of supreme elegant playing..."
Brian Wise RHYTHMS

"The album shows off the many talents of Alex Pertout…"
Steve Waldon THE AGE

"Alex Pertout's 'Lusambo' is cerebrally appealing. There are
qualities that unfold more clearly with repeated playing and
because it's something different, something unpredictable
and spontaneously uplifting it demands to be heard (9/10)"
Terry Reilly BEAT MAGAZINE

"Pertout puts out solo gem…"
Peter Familari HERALD SUN
