About his project LabA, Bass Player magazine said: “LabA is a Mexican bass virtuoso Alonso Arreola and a group of friends that include Michael Manring, King Crimson's Trey Gunn, and fusion guitarist David Fiuczynski. But what makes this collection of miniatures worth hearing isn't the caliber of the musicianship, but the imagination and emotional expression within the music”. J.D. Consdine
