What people are saying about Down Home

 "The saxophonist/banjoist's Down Home is three parts roots music, two parts jazz, one part blues, mixed on a country porch, and, pardon the cliché, it cooks... the saxophonist takes jazz back to a rural place... It's as if the windows have been thrown open to allow a deep breath of music to flow through the jazz house."
Mark Corroto, All About Jazz

"From the nostalgic to the personal to the eternal, it’s the multiple layers of meaning on Down Home that make it special and ring with resonance. Much more than a musical travelogue, the disc suggests that home in fact is where Cancura’s heart is, and that we as listeners are very welcome to enjoy ourselves there."
Peter Hum, Ottawa Citizen

"Incisive polyphony surrounds the leader’s gutbucket statements on the shambolic cut “Roasting”,
its gestures of stateliness and rollick a perfect followup..."
Clifford Allen, The New York City Jazz Record
