“This is a swinging straight ahead group that lopes along gracefully with a big musical stick in hand. Mas Que Nada, Cool solo by Brunotte at the organ and the steady unruffled beat of drummer Bill Berg drives this tune like a Rolls Royce..,you can't go wrong with this album. 4 Stars ”

“Based out of Durham, North Carolina, multi-talented musician Gary Brunotte draws on his years of experience as an organist and pianist to create Manic Moments, a unique blend of jazz that defies generic categorization... an intriguing musical landscape.”

“Featuring a trio, quartet and septet, organist Gary Brunotte’s fourth album shifts from cool Brazilian breezes to twitchy urban struts, and from haunting balladry to happy stomps. He switches instruments as well ... unified by his sunny spirit ... his love of the material shines through.”
