Dave Brubeck  Oberlin CD "Brubeck's clean, clear arrangements showed an audience of classical music snobs just how sophisticated his music could be... All four were on fire... the release of Jazz At Oberlin set everything that was to follow into motion. It is a great milestone in Dave Brubeck's career." -Greg Barbrick,

Count Basie  EuroArts American Music "Nothing demonstrates Count Basie's eminence in the dance hall like the newly remastered documentary DVD... The bulk of the hour long DVD is devoted to commentary by musicians that played with the Basie band... and archival musical performances by some of the most respected names in jazz... the best thing about this documentary is the emphasis on the music. There is nothing like extended performance footage to illustrate the greatness of a musician."-SeattlePI

Marc Copland Alone  Pirouet "While his last two solo discs focused on original music and standards, the similarly configured Alone expands the repertoire by providing a very specific and unique focus on three Joni Mitchell tunes... Those who've not yet been charmed by his inward-looking pianism couldn't start at a better place than the aptly titled Alone."
