websites Mark Whitecage 55Bar "There's wallpaper music and "major league" stuff; "No Respect" belongs without the slightest doubt to the latter category... right here you'll find a kind of adventurous playing never falling short of the highest level of creativity...The rhythm section formed by Duval and Rosen is one of the best I've listened to in years." --Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes "[No Respect] features one of the finest and most in-demand rhythm sections around. Mark's wonderfully distinctive, bittersweet alto sax tone is always reaching for great depths and heights. There is a constant searching spirit that connects all three members of this trio, they swagger, fly, wail, dig in and sail together. Bravo!!" -- Bruce Lee Gallanter, proprietor, Downtown Music Gallery "The man is an absolute master of the alto saxophone and clarinet (not to mention a dab hand at electronics), and one of the finest and most original jazz composers in the world, and has been for years." --
Dan Warburton, Signal To Noise & Paris Transatlantic "The trio of Dominic Duval, Jay Rosen and Mark Whitecage convey a strong sense of intimacy...three musicians picking up a spark of current and transforming it into brilliant light. Their music has rushing absorbability, rolling mightily along and gathering momentum as the sound of reeds, bass and drums all intertwine cohesively. The entire performance clicks along seamlessly, yielding gems of improvised beauty at every turn." --

No Respect Duval/Rosen/Whitecage has performed and recorded together for almost a decade.
