Also, may I pay tribute to Chin's composing efforts which are included which are compelling to say the least. Chin's piano delivery is stellar in that he is adept at intricate & outstanding musical contexts that relate to his sure sense of rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic brinkmanship. Both John & his group are to be considered powerful, skilled, & appealingly genuine, & any recognition that this present project creates I assure my readers is fully deserved.”
