Sabir Mateen’s enduring presence which no-one can ignore within the scene of improvisational music has made him protagonist of one chapter in Phil Freeman’s book "New York Is Now! The New Wave of Free Jazz".

" ... Dell, Ramond and Kugel ... is an excellent rhythm section, that quietly turns in an exhilarating performance. Everything is terrifically balanced, from the song structures to the interaction. Collective motion is electric: a charging, spasmodic swing rises up from all sides. They are, simply, an irresistible rhythm trio, by turns direct, elusive, and awash in color." - Greg Buium, CODA MAGAZINE, Canada, 2003
