Walter Kolosky, Jazz.com: It took about 10 seconds to realize that Rosh is a
talented lyricist. Each fun
tale is told in a succinct and entertaining flow. This is all about showmanship
- a concept many times
forgotten these days. I don't see how it is possible to not like this CD
Global Rhythm Magazine: Performed with freshness, humor and verve. So
vivid that you can almost hear the late-night clink of ice cubes.
Paul Freeman, Bay Area News Group: With Rosh's canny vocals and clever
lyrics, backed by impressive instrumentation, Fundamental is fabulously
Chris Handyside, Real Detroit Weekly: This guy has mega-chops: a beguiling
by lyrics that recall Cohen and Zevon.
Nate Seltenrich, East Bay Express: Charming tales about decaffeinated coffee,
golf course foibles, five-dollar
shoes, picking up chicks at the library, and more - all set to peppy, horn-
laden cabaret grounded in blues and '40s and '50s vocal jazz - make Stuart
Rosh's fourth album an unexpected and undeniable treat
