"Technically, you might say ‘In Color’ [by Jessie Montgomery] is ‘classical’, and its sections work as cinematice interludes between the [Bob Stewart’s] First Line performances. But taken as a whole, ‘In Color’ is an integral piece, from the dissonant, suspended harmonies of ‘Red’ to the driving, complex rhythms of ‘Aqua’. It’s also impressive how easily its sections segues in an out of the jazz and blues pieces."
