"RICKY FORD/Paul's Scene: Saxalicious! Nuff said! Old pro Ford blows up a storm with some other old pros at his side. All have no dust on them. A beautiful straight ahead date that needs no frippery to make it's point, this is pure listening gold."  - Chris Spector (Midwest Record)

"Ford delivers a masterclass in tenor saxophone playing, drawing on the traditionalists with a reverence for bop and vitality for ballads that few can match." - Jim Hynes (Glide Magazine)

Click image below to see Shawnn "Return to the Stage"

"Some who have heard this jewel of a recording have noted this is Shawnn’s best work to date." - Keys and Chords

"The charged, intensely passionate music crested with dulcet beauty of Monteiro's vocals makes You Are There a rapturous listening experience, highly recommended especially for connoisseurs of the genre." - James Cox (Midwest Book Review)

"...Govoni makes a bold statement with Hiding In Plain Sight, not just proving that he can hang with the best of the best, but establishing himself as a serious artist who’s just as vital a performer with as much to say as today’s jazz fest headliners and poll winners." - Ed Enright (DownBeat)

"Worth multiple listens." - George W. Harris (Jazz Weekly)

"This is genuine, at times absolutely burning, convicted hard bop balanced by a couple of lovely ballads and a couple of unexpected styles with all hands on deck, moving joyously full steam, and straight ahead. It’s a keeper." - Jim Hynes (Making A Scene Magazine)

"Highly recommended for both traditional and modern jazz appreciators, this album sounds tremendously confident and passionate, giving a good glimpse of Wyatt’s abilities as a composer and soloist." - Jazz Trail

"Wyatt’s playing is clearly influenced by Coltrane, but also by Sonny Rollins – strong, direct and melodic, coming in sharply on solos – snap, right on the button." - Matthew Wright (Jazz Journal)

With a gift for linking bold expositions and improvisations with warmhearted thoughts, this Brooklyn-based tenor saxophonist consistently demonstrates that strength and empathy, though seemingly worlds apart, are just two sides of the same coin." - The New York City Jazz Record

"...each unit functions with high levels of inspiration, joie de vivre as well as an unfailingly swinging attitude" - Ted Panken (DownBeat)
