"Invention aplenty...the sheer energy of spontaneous creation is visceral throughout...a life-enhancing treat" --- Fanfare Magazine

"Revolutionary Snake Ensemble has been putting its unique and somewhat twisted twist on the New Orleans brass band tradition for more than 25 years...hard-partying avant-funk, with boisterous soloing...I Want That Sound! is a strong example of how Ken Field and the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble continue to push the brass band tradition forward in an entirely original way, all the while making music that's a heck of a lot of fun."--- NYC Jazz Record
