“Profoundly lyrical bass work" Stuart Broomer, The Whole Note (read The Whole Note review)

"Ripple Effect is a beautifully layered textural conversation with a trio performing as one harmonic train of thought... The technique and interplay between Downes and pianist Robi Botos is remarkable as their own lyrical visions become intertwined within each piece." Brent Black, Bop-N-Jazz (read Bop-N-Jazz review)
