"You can''t help but feel you are taking a musical journey through a world of unique sounds when you listen to his new release. His emotion you get from the CD is like jumping into a sea of tranquillity and cooling off from a hot summer day with lush melodies, thoughtful interpratations and compelling compositions. His creative voice as an improviser is a major event. His playing will continue as a musical power in the new millenium! - Tim Price-Saxophone Journal
