  1. I loved the music! I went right out and bought it at Amazon. I love the arrangements…very well done. I dug your interview with TK. He is a great artist! Thx

  2. Great saxophonist, I appreciate this music, he has a precise and clear sound …, and I think the pianist also play with swing. I agree people nowadays don’t have attention for solos with 20 minutes.
