“I have just received your wonderful CD “Edge Of The Wall” by Steven Messenger, it came to us through Radiodirectx, glad it did as we really love your stunning sophisticated Jazz, your style is dramatic, evocative and very subtle. The choice of material backed up with a smooth cooking band is marvelous and gels together into a lush sound that leaves no moment not treated to Steven’s creativeness. This is the type of CD that has you wanting more and our audiences most certainly will love your sound.” --Peter at 106.7 FM Melbourn, Australia
