Dillon Ethier Lively big band jazz. Some of it sounds more traditional, some of it casually rocks harder than most rock bands on full tilt. All of it is interesting yet accessible. Favorite track: three.

Al Swainger Fantastic variety, musicianship & writing. Jazz as it should be : reflecting the musical world of it's time yet striving for something new without ignoring the past. Vibrant, eclectic & moving - I can't recommend it enough. Favorite track: broken.

Hugh Tollyfield I love the power and energy of this piece. I've seen the band twice and each time the performance was electrifying. Favorite track: bake.

Ed Buckley Very well done big band jazz. You hear a mix, running from an updated swing style to modern jazz, while avoiding excessive dissonance. Favorite track: elf.

Patricio Zenklussen Big band avant-garde jazzy music. Listening to this record produces me a very strange, energetic sensation. Melancholia, suspense and action all together on this fine piece of art. Favorite track: bake.
