“Arnold Faber has been on the Canadian scene for over 25 years, consistently doing great things on percussion and, more importantly, vibraphone. The sounds he makes on Blue Comedy could have come from the bottom of the sea, washing over the listener with a soothing grace that leaves one feeling simply refreshed. Reworking songs by Jan Garbarek and Frank Zappa, among others you'll be familiar with, Faber breathes new life into them with the help of his great band, Vibré. The Dave Brubeck classic The Unsquare Dance, a particularly snappy number, takes on an almost acid-jazz twist here that any fan of St. Germain would dig.” - Brent Raynor, Now Magazine, Toronto
