“The Syncopated Taint Septet is saxophonist Skerik’s playful and at times daring band. Most of the group arose from the Seattle experimental jazz scene. On Husky, the septet is spacey, funky and occasionally as mellow as a soul jazz ensemble. ‘Syncopate the Taint’ has the swinging cacophony of Sun Ra’s Orkestra, ‘Song for Bad’ is beautiful, mournful soul, and ‘The Third Rail’ is a noir soundtrack. The players are still experimenting but their creativity is focused and like-minded.” – Roberta Penn, Seattle Post Intelligencer
