    What a pleasure to have this to add to my jazz program. One can really feel the love and strength of Django Reinhardt in a great performance by these musicians. Great skills! – Joost Van Steen, Jazz & Blues Tour Radio

  2. Ben says:

    … is one of the best jazz releases of 2008. Even though I’m listening in 2009. It’s a distinctly guitar-drive jazz album, almost classical in orientation. (It) contains “the sophistication and coolness of modern jazz” and they are right to call themselves such. – Ben Ohmart, Soopah Music

  3. John says:

    When you hear them play Dizzy Gillespie’s “Be-Bop” or Charles Mingus‘ “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat”, one can only imagine these legends smiling and tapping their feet if they were around to do so (Mingus might yell and curse them out, but that would be his way of showing approval). – John Book
