“I've been listening to Johnny Griffith's new Ep and it's a good one.On first listen it immediately captured my attention. Great playing by all involved and very strong compositions by Johnny to set the framework for some fantastic interplay within the band.Conceptually this recording has all the elements that I look for in a great jazz recording,a strong connection with the past masters of the music balanced with a voice and vision that are of today.Congratulations to Johnny on an outstanding recording, I'm knocked out with the music and performance contained on this disc.I look forward to hearing more from this group.” Kirk MacDonald
