Some choice quotes of support both spoken aloud and shared in the guestbook:

"I want to live inside this music." --Salem, OR

"Is it possible for music to make you feel reflective, chill, & like you're the star in a spy thriller all at the same time? I LOVE IT." --Portland, OR

"Rediscovered the magic!" --Glacier, WA

"Listening to the computer and the trumpet play together...not really jazz but kind of. It's like 'Kind of Blue' for the next generation." --Portland, OR

"Mystic. Like a great martini. I love it. I want a CD!" --Glacier, WA

"Hey you guys are great. I loved the way your music moved through the room. It was a really different sound. Can't wait to listen to your CD." --Newberg, OR

"Enjoyed your music and rhythm. It was a new experience for me." --Portland, OR

"Your music is Euphoria - like an opioid mystical high without the drug. I love it; thanks for playing." --Portland, OR

"Your music grabs the beat of the heart and makes it beat with joy! I love the rhythms that change and evolve! The trumpet adds to the flow and fills the gaps, completing the experience. Keep evolving, I love listening to you!" --Portland, OR

"The soundtrack to my mid-1970s technicolor sexcapade!" --Portland, OR

"Contemplative, dreamy, astral." --Portland, OR

"Quite thought provoking and relaxing at the same time. The transitions from each feeling were smooth and spiritual. You gave me chills! Dropped me down picked me up in a gentle rollercoaster of serenity. Thank you!" --Portland, OR

"You would imply certain melodies but not finish them...but they would finish. In my mind." --Portland, OR

"Dark alleyways lit by amber glow. The notes flow like rainwater from a black umbrella. The contents of my back pocket contains something I'd rather not tell. Ethereal? No. Bleak? No. Beautiful? Yes." --Portland, OR

"I loved the passion of your music. I felt relaxed/joyful." --Newberg, OR

"This is the second set we have caught. Your music is, for me, tranquilly motivating. Thank you both." --Portland, OR

"Spaciousness and improvisation creates an inspiring backdrop to wine and conversation." --Portland, OR

"Playing pool by your set I felt electrified. Your sound really pulses through the soul. Keep playing. At one point, I swear to God, I felt like I was in Miami. For what that's worth. The transitions are seamless and the trumpet is so well-timed. This is much more than 'the statement' ya'll asked for. But let me tell you, it made me feel: honeyed. smooth. legubrious. (sp?) The atmosphere was thick, wet, dark, and 'dive'-y. Well-composed. I give you both credit." --Portland, OR

"Relaxed, but excited." --Salem, OR

"Great music - had a meditative afternoon listening to you guys play - very very nice - I want to hear more." --Portland, OR

"Tantric and ethereal. A constant breath of fresh air. Like lying naked in a forest at night, far away from 'real life,' and breathing for the first time." --Portland, OR

"The trumpet is the perfect organic sound to meet the electronic synthesized sound. Instead of clashing they greet each other on another plane. Each sound allows you to move freely and explore the other sound. The music is living in the moment, it is here and now. Constructed and Deconstructed as it passes. Urgent without being desperate. Purposeful without being preachy. Drifting and free but not lost." --Portland, OR

"It's like music to [procreate] by." --Salem/Portland, OR

What will you have to say...?
