Seattle Times

"an accomplished musician, composer and arranger...every number swings...a compact collection of cookers brought to a live boil." -Tom Phalen


News Tribune

"Exceptional...a superb album that coaxes the fullness and flair of a big band from a tight and swinging sextet. The digital recording is an impressive technical achievement." -Rick Nelson


5/4 Magazine

"a very full sounding ensemble with the energy and feel of a big band and the freedom of a small group...a lot like Monk's work with a large group." -A.R. Kettle


Earshot Jazz

"the stage is set...this music really rocks! The sextet sounds far bigger than the sum of it's parts...bluesy, angular and pushy...even the ballad numbers have a hard edge, straight from the Woody Herman tradition." -L.W.
