"Griswold's exploration of the saxophone quartet, Dreams you might not come back from... interrogates the texture and grain of the saxophone sound at the same time as messing with the warp and weft of the meter, pulse and rhythm. Players enjoy their own worlds at the same time as melding together to create ensemble that is, paradoxically, composed and aleatoric, together and yet separate"
