Convergence CD Review by Dennis Slater, published in Fast Forward Weekly (abridged):

Convergence is tight and complex, loaded with original compositions and inspired flights of improvisation. The first release from the Brent Mah/Alex Goodman Quartet showcases strong, balanced ensemble playing. The album opens with the powerful, layered "Momentum," then jumps into an interpretation of Pink Floyd's “Goodbye Blue Sky” before plunging into a flurry of original compositions. Through it all, you’d guess this group of young musicians possessrd years of experience playing together — but that isn’t the case. Yet despite being founded  founded only in January 2009, this quartet is truly four guys who play as one. There's something for everyone here: fresh original compositions and interpretations of Radiohead and Pink Floyd numbers. Each has its own character but they all have one clear voice.
