"The masterful self-titled album by Hands On'Semble features John Bergamo, Randy Gloss, Austin Wrinkle, Andrew Grueschow, and guests Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri and Poovalur Srinivasan working out a kaleidoscope of compositions featuring doumbek, tabla, riq, djembe, and various other worldly hand drums." -Modern Drummer Magazine

"The members of Hands On'semble are John Bergamo, Randy Gloss, Andrew Grueschow, and Austin Wrinkle. Special guests on this CD include Swapan Chaudhuri and Poovalur Srinivasan. This just might be the best percussion recording ever made. The drumming is of such a high quality that this CD is on my short list of the CDs I can recommend to any drummer or percussionist. It is one of those rare CDs that is wonderful to listen to, and also can be played over and over in order to learn new rhythms and compositional forms. Instruments played include Tabla, Frame Drums, Riq, Djembe, Kanjira, Mridangam, gongs, marimba, sogo , congas, and dumbek. Every drummer should own this CD."

"The Hands On'Semble (John Bergamo, Andrew Grueschow, Randy Gloss, and Austin Wrinkle) are a California-based group specializing in hand-percussion music. Their self-titled CD contains a collection of of compositions that feature a variety of percussion instruments from around the globe, including the doumbek, riq, frame drum, sogo, tarine, gankogui, mridangam, kanjira, solkattu, and djembe. Most of the “tunes” are based on the musical traditions of India, Africa, the Middle East, and Indonesia.
Many of the compositions are by ensemble members and contain both improvised and composed sections. The liner notes refer to each piece being in basic cycles, not time signatures. As such, “Wart Hog #3” is an undulating little vamp in 7; “Crevice” is an African/Indian sounding tune in 11; “Deep Dun-Dun” is a north Indian inspired tune in a cycle of 14; and “three Fro” is reflective of a gamelan work in a cycle of 6. “Frembe” lays to rest any notions that djembes and frame drums cannot create beautiful music together (as often argued by drum circle participants), while “Boon Rawd” is a result of the ensemble's experimentation with metal instruments – including the Italian spaghetti pan, and the American mason jar.
This is an excellent recording for listeners who wish to hear the full spectrum of musical sounds available from hand drums from around the world. It would also serve as a good “play-along” for those who wish to learn to play (and improvise) over rhythm cycles other than 4/4."
