Review:
"...the music is technically challenging, but performed extremely gracefully throughout. ...what really strikes me about the music is Child's ability to create different character sketches with each section of his music. ...Each brief section is like a character in a book...the story evolves naturally on the album Doubles. From beginning to end, the story is worth hearing." (Endless Possibilities).

"...music that is both fresh and approachable. One feels the composer is having great fun, and the attendant joy is infectious. Child also has a gift for incorporating diverse musical languages and traditions without sounding cheap or facile." (Fanfare)
