Reviews and Quotes:
"Freshly squeezed: Miami keyboardist and composer Scott Routenberg defies logic by finding ways to make a drum machine creative on his new CD, Lots of Pulp...Routenberg creates true world music by using everything and the kitchen sink on Lots of Pulp."
-Bill Meredith, PALM BEACH POST
"For composer Scott Routenberg, the world is his studio. Routenberg's music is so fresh, it'll fool ya!"
-Bob Weinberg, CITYLINK
"This 2003 recording from UM-trained pianist-composer Routenberg blew me away. While you marvel at the inventiveness of his sound-design — he sampled everything from the jingle of sacks of change to the thwuck of concentrated orange juice squeezed from its container — the masterful compositions and good humor win you over. Colors from violin, harp and cello to flute, sax and oboe add to the tonal pallette, mixing the organic and electronic in a very modern and satisfying way."
-Bob Weinberg, South Florida Favorite CDs 2008
"Lots of Pulp has lots of groove."
-Raul Murciano, University of Miami Frost School of Music
