“Feiner couldn’t have made better picks, as the quartet is fully in sync from the get-go.” — Jazztimes
"With Accents, Feiner pushes the pandeiro up a few notches in the eyes of the jazz listening public and presents ten songs brimming over with rhythmic vitality and creativity." — AllAboutJazz
"Accents, the third album in this series is a wonderful exploration of percussive minimalism, but it's got no shortage of kick to it … ultimately, it's Feiner who shines, striking the pandeiro in every way imaginable and milking that little drum for much more than it would appear capable of doing." – Rochester City Newspaper
