”Brough’s sax kicks in and the bass/drum rhythm section catches on fire culminating in Terry Clarke’s kick-ass drum solo ...to enjoy some jazz, you can’t go wrong with The Bob Brough Quartet’s CD, Time Away.” Jim Dupuis earshot Oct 21'08

“Like A Spring Day offers the opportunity to showcase the talents of singer Carol McCartney. Bob Brough impressed us last year on his debut CD and, likewise, as an accompanist he proves equally adept. We get to hear him solo on every track and also provide gorgeous obbligatos behind McCartney in a manner that you'd associate with Stan Getz or Scott Hamilton.” --Michael P...
