”Richard Sorce has an original Latin-Jazz sound that is a force to be reckoned with.” Gigi Brooks, Jazz times.

“...great CD; you are quite accomplished and it shows in your music.” James Harber, The Jazz Intersection.

“...a great CD!”...there's a wholes different approach...it seems like you've taken so much of what you've been doing and started creating a whole new genre...” Leslie Ford, Jazz Talk.

...”A Place I've Never Been” in my mind is already a jazz classic, right up there with Brubeck, Getz, Gilberto, Ellis and Jobim.” Todd Severen, Ripple Review.
