Contemporary Fusion Reviews:
most interesting combination of rhythm & down-home funky playing…tight trio…straight-ahead solos
and pure raw energy…impressive variety of styles…MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Dennis Winge’s… playing…[is] filled with creative jazz and displays his versatility along with plenty of
surprises yet has a strong unity. Winge has an original sound on his guitar… [On the album] there is a
