...we agree that is serious jazz coming from Manasia's trio. Jerry really swings on piano on You Do Something To Me and even with more of a swagger on Witchery. These are young players coming together having played with more notable talent and now saying something on their own. Jeremy has four originals here as well and we're convinced that what he is saying is worth listening to!

It is impossible for me to take the long, long cab ride from JFK to Manhattan--up the Van Wyck to the LIE, past Corona Park to the Queensborough Bridge--as I do frequently in the course of my work, without the Witchery album playing in my head. Jeremy has created a magnificent soundtrack for the City.
