Bailey, Lynn René, “Little, Jonathan: Terpsichore and Other Works” [CD Review] in Fanfare (USA), Vol.31: No.5 (May-June 2008), pp.179-180. ISSN 0148-9364; UPC 2527475675; “The Magazine for Serious Record Collectors” - "music of tremendous power”. "... Little's music sounds like no one else's. Not anyone's. He contrasts large and small forces, rhythmic and melodic fragments, in a manner consistently contrary to both academic formula and expected musical patterns. What sounds like the start of a development, for instance, rapidly fragments into shards of sound that float into space. What sounds incoherent and disconnected coalesces into a development section. Too much to say and too little space to say it; but why bother anyway? This is an aural experience, and to put it into words degrades the astonishing range of colors and moods he creates. ... Trust me, once you re about halfway through the title work, you won't be able to take it off. ... Mr. Little is quite a talent indeed."--Lynn René Bayley, in Fanfare (May-June 2008), 31:5 (USA)
