"Friends & Neighbors, the young neo-free-jazz band from Norway, takes its name from Ornette Coleman's 1970 album of the same name. The spirit behind the phrase suits the quintet beautifully, and in terms of both historical stylistic precedent and a certain, strong and palpable ensemble identity - a a friendly, neighborly, and collective musical persona. That group-think, along with bold individualism of the parties involved, comes through loud and clear, with blissful wisps of heartwarming anarchy ..." - Downbeat Magazine, from review of Friends & Neighbors' record "Hymn for a Hungry Nation"
