“At a time when the sounds heard most often are merely stale copies of the past, Shades of Truth by talented composer/drummer Trevor Anderies is truly a welcome breeze of fresh air. It's young musicians like Trevor and his brilliant ensemble, who are bringing forth the highly creative, exciting and innovative improvisations of the 21st. century. This outstanding project proves that modern American music is absolutely in great hands. “
