“On Steel, Flaten combines technical facality with depth of expression in a manner that recalls past masters like Paul Chambers, Wilbur Ware, Charlie Haden, and Malachi Favors. His attack can turn percussive, whether he’s playing pizzicato or arco. At other times, his lines have a vocalized quality. And he’s a master of bowed harmonics that can make his bass sound like a reed instrument or a whole string section, even without electronic augmention.” - The Stash Dauber
