"Outstanding Jazz Fusion band from Stockholm ..." (agent RN)

Absolutely killer fusion! (Reahouse)

Come on over here and listen to this!
Outstanding! Terrific writing. Fantastic writing!! Very fresh and highly original. All the players are solid. Production quality is superb. The bass solo section is really beautiful and what a player. I loved every second of this tune. You've restored my faith in this style of composition. I can't wait to hear more!
(Garageband review)

Smooth Jazz ready for AC adds
I hear a pro producer at work. I hear an experienced, veteran band at play. I hear lots of money thrown down. I hear a sound ready for radio. What, did Bob Ludwig master this? There's some serious investments made on this, and I'd most definitely bet my ass this was recorded in LA. (Garageband review)
