Reviews and Quotes:

 

"The soundtrack-ready opus resembles some of fellow keyboardist Herbie Hancock's future shocks."

-Bill Meredith, JAZZIZ

 

"Great writing and playing-very inventive and original-that's so nice to hear."

-Randy Brecker

 

"I was stunned by how you cracked the code of so many different styles...you found soloists who improvised lines with real substance. Jazztronicus takes up where Quincy Jones and Oliver Nelson left off."

-Dr. Mark Gridley, Jazz historian and author of Jazz Styles
