In 2006 drummer Josh Feldstein established the Verve Jazz Ensemble, a contemporary jazz group playing standards and straight ahead material in the finest venues throughout the Connecticut area... The Verve Jazz Ensemble delivers quite an attention-grabbing first effort drawing inspiration for an encore performance... An all-around solid performance from the Verve Jazz Ensemble, Feldstein and group lay down one impressive recording with It's About Time making the wait well worth it.

VERVE JAZZ ENSEMBLE / It's About Time: Here's a bunch of young lions that have put in their time and are now serving up totally awesome results. They aren't in the tradition, they are right in the pocket. Showing how retro can be a very good thing when you can't improve on perfection, this sounds like those Jai & Kai dates you found cleaning out your grandparents basement that had you wondering how they were once so hip and you never knew it. Smoking, contemporary mainstream jazz that is just so right you almost won't be able to stand it—-in a good way. Hot stuff that really delivers.

”Love [”It's About Time”] more each time I hear this. Well chosen material and very talented players. Everyone should be able to play this CD.” -Jack Hoope, WWNO New Orleans.
