QUOTES: “Jazz more than only music: Musicians regal, experienced, relaxed, in perfect harmony.... John Voigt with his super-modern sleek structured bass makes light as a feather dialogues with the drums, then trumpet....he [Voigt] says ‘There is much that's bad in the world, but even the worst hides sparks of divine light.'
