I think this new recording will bring in some new fans, while more than satisfying the ones who have been there all along." -JAZZ NEWS

The band is impassioned. William Green executes a magnificent Hammond B-3 solo that is ‘fat’, soulful and spirited. The band is trading solo passages to display talented musical chemistry and capture the audience’s imagination."

"I have goose bumps all over. William Green’s piano solo is double-time, with vivid hand percussion accents and crescendos."

"Susan’s vocal engages in a captivating answer/response passage with the Hammond B-3. The subsequent B-3 solo reaches the heavens. Wow! The entire audience is clapping along as the tenor solo is hot! The arrangement goes into double-time and is truly inspiring. Now, William Green on keyboards is going wild! What incredible showmanship."
