“I just received your excellent CD. The performances are all first rate, as is the writing, and I can tell this is a CD that will be getting “heavy rotation” on my player.” - Mike Metheny, Kansas City

“...an artistically rewarding and great sounding recording with an emotional immediacy that is impressive. A high level of interactive musicianship is displayed. Perhaps the biggest revelation on this CD is the consistent sophistication of the well crafted compositions. Rich Lamb is the composer, and while there is no doubt that this is a jazz recording brimming with improvisational skill, there is an almost ”classical structure” underpinning the intelligent chord progressions and often beautiful and evocative melodies.” - Chris Brubeck, bassist/composer
