What The Press Is Saying About The President
The President has evolved into a truly funky instrumental rock & roll band; Horvitz
himself describes it as a blues band with some twist. However you label it, it's brash and
bold, with hard-edged, deep-hued primary colors slashing jagged lines across temporal and
generic boundaries...it's also about as far from the fuzak of GRP and Zebra as you can run.
Gene Santoro, Down Beat
This wasn't country music, but an abstracted elliptical version of it that tied into an
understanding of a mutual Americanness - gospel chords, country melodies, blues ideas - most
people in the audience would understand.
Peter Watrous, The New York Times
The President, an exciting, cerebrally funky sextet of avant-funkers...recalls what fusion
used to be - music that not only combines disparate elements but does so with keen
intelligence, high definition and incendiary suspense.
