“SERGEJ AVANESOV/Secret Language: From Russia he came with a love and knowledge of jazz and classics, having fondness for both. A sax man with smarts galore, he blows hard here without blowing his brains out in a fine program of lightly left leaning blowing that is much more than a tempest in a teapot. Solid stuff from a young lion that roars with ease.” – Midwest Record
