Zelfs de bezigste drumbij werd een beetje vleugellam door Covid, maar Noonan zou Noonan niet zijn moest hij niet opeens opduiken met jawel twee albums in zo goed als één keer. ” - Bootsie Butsenzeller

"The Zappa connection holds in that the singing is often wild falsetto, notably on the opening As The World Spins or a faux-artless folksy yell on Silkie From The Sea, which seems to have a Scots/Irish provenance, which is presumably his family background. The most remarkable cut, though, is Don Knott’s, which fugues, almost literally, on the few phonetic possibilities of the title, while Noonan maintains a tight, supertight cymbal riff underneath... track by track, it’s insanely good" Drumavox album review Jazz Journal” - Brian Morton

"Ward has rarely sounded better or more focused. Noonan is all bustle and energy, but there’s a stillness, too, at the centre of what he does. It’s a highly impressive showing" Noonward duo album review in jazz Journal Summer 2020” - Brian Morton

Sean Noonan Music's Tan Man's Hat well reviewed on German online publication Betreutes Proggen "Da ist erst einmal Malcolm Mooney, ehemals Sänger der legendären CAN , Bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma zupfte den Tieftöner einst bei Ornette Coleman’s Prime Time, Gitarristin Ava Mendoza sorgt bei den New Yorkern Experimentalrockern Unnatural Ways für offene Münder und rangiert nebenbei in der ‘Guitar World’ unter den ’10 Female Guitarists You Should Know’ und Keyboarder Alexis Marcelo verdient sich sonst seine Brötchen bei Yusef Lateef. Womit sich Sean Noonan hier wirklich ein kongeniales Ensemble zusammengestellt hat, welches bei Pavees Dance die Möglichkeit hat, so richtig vom Leder zu ziehen."”

Betreutes Proggen

Sopravvissuto ad un incidente d'auto quasi fatale che l'ha costretto a un lungo periodo di convalescenza e riabilitazione, regalandogli però il tempo di dedicarsi allo studio del jazz e ritmi africani, Sean Noonan è arrivato all'attenzione del pubblico come drummer del trio punk/jazz The HUB. Ottimo questo suo secondo lavoro insieme al collettivo Pavees Dance, produttore di un jazz rock in stile zappiano che vanta il vocalist della formazione originale dei Can, Malcolm Mooney, il bassista Jamaaladeen Tacuma (già nella Ornette Coleman's Prime Time), la chitarrista Ava Mendoza (Unnatural Ways) e il tastierista Alex Marcelo (Yusef Lateef)”
