“Representing not only the Bronx, but more specifically Co-op City, Just A Lil Bit showed the crowd what a band of virtuosos could do. From the funkadelic guitar riffs to the sizzling saxophone solo to the outstanding drummer the song was a tour through the band’s musical abilities. Just A Lil Bit has also been playing together for many years. These guys practically grew up together. One member of the band said, “We know what works because we don’t only know each other’s styles, we know each other’s personalities.”
"An intriguing new jazz release, from an independent group of musicians who wanted to add a little twist, perhaps a bit of spice to the place mat - smooth jazz. They added some serious urban jazz funk and lots of personality."
"Gangsta Smooth Jazz is not CD101.9 meets Suge Knight (scary!). But it’s more of a reminder that gangstas need love too. Think Sir Luscious Left Foot, Bootsy Collins and Brand New Heavies-type love. What’s really refreshing about the band and their debut full-length album is that they are convincing. Each song and it’s parts felt true to the musicians who jammed them. Just a Lil Bit feels and sounds like real people playing real music, honestly." By Nicole L. Smith | DMM
