★★★★ -Downbeat Magazine (Feb. '08 issue)

“The arrangements of Stella & I'll Remember April are spectacular. Nice band!” -Dave Liebman, Saxophonist (Miles Davis)

“Steve Norfleet has put together an inspired recording of original material with a great bunch of musicians. His playing and writing are full-on, and he isn't afraid to go where no man has gone before. This is a sound and concept that is Steve's alone. He has a distinct voice that is quite recognizable. I truly enjoyed listening to this music, finding surprises and inspiring ideas all along the way. This cat can spin a tale!” - Bob Mintzer, Grammy Award-Winning Saxophonist (Yellowjackets)
