"Flaherty's music possesses an irresistible kinetic energy coupled with a tremendous expressivity; the result is music that grips the listener from beginning to end. Of particular note is the title piece, Looking for Answers, for piano trio and electronics, which is a truly blockbuster piece, and one of the best works I've ever heard that combines electronics with a traditional chamber music scoring and language."
-Carson Cooman, Fanfare Magazine

"sober . . . irreverent . . .sensual . . . wonky"
-Ron Schepper, textura.com

"Tom Flaherty speaks with a profound and innovative compositional voice, and his music should gain a wide audience. I do hope that this CD will serve that end, as the performances and recordings all present these works in a wonderful light. I'm happy to give this disc an unqualified recommendation."
-David DeBoor Canfield, Fanfare Magazine

". . . the playing is extremely fine. There is a simple joy to these pieces, with Flaherty's love of melodic patterns and playful ways of using an instrument shining through. I found plenty to admire. A fine disc to try out." 
-Barnaby Rayfield, Fanfare Magazine
