"(Intersection)...It's definitely music for today, streamlined yet atmospheric...a listener hears the rare but gratifying combination of lyricism and cutting edge music."
-THE TORONTO STAR read the full review
"Guitarist David Occhipinti is a lyrical player whose work touches on deep emotional reserves, while his quartet, featuring saxophonist Mike Murley, bassist Andrew Downing and drummer Terry Clarke, is a responsive unit."

"With an exploratory compositional and playing style that incorporates influences from a variety of sources, David Occhipinti has delivered his strongest effort to date. Intersection positions him as one of Canada’s finest young composers and performers, and bodes well for the future." -PLANET JAZZ
