"Noche Caliente" - love the energy...it's infectious!
“Your playing is beyond what I normally enjoy when it comes to horns in arrangements. I get this fantastic vibe every time I do hear your creations. You have a flow that is completely original yet echoes some of the pioneers who more than likely made you want to to play to begin with. I hear your own unique style & then I also hear raindrops from Bacharach to early Procol Harum arrangements. Damn fine playing 'Hack.”
"REFLECTIONS" takes me to one of the big ballrooms of fancy hotels in La Havan, Cuba in the 50's.
"Para Siempre" is quite magical!!! The horn is brilliant and melodious and the instrumentation is gorgeously interweaved into it. Beautifully impressive!!! Nicely percussive, too! Great composition!!!
“Great Brass playing Mike. Reflections is a beautiful piece. Love your music lots mate.”
“Your melodies are solid yet narrative. Nice work.”
“Reflections is a real cool track. I like the laid back flow and the melody; real cool arrangement. Also, 711 is real smooth stuff.”
“Your music really shines with your brass work, no pun intended. Very nice.”
“You got great stuff on here.”
“Yeah - Dialogue is cool, nice and mellow, it reminds me of something, but I can't remember what it is?”
“I like Late Thursday Night the best :) ”
“(About J D), I like the way this one builds.”
“Some tasty music!”
