"This collection showcases so many of Jeff's formidable talents --- I daresay he "owns" some of these songs. All of the playing is first rate and the tracking was superb. What a pleasure!"

I was so impressed with the versatility that Jeff has demonstrated on his new CD. “Since I Fell for You”, is one of my all time favorite songs. Jeff’s arrangement and orchestration exudes breathtaking emotion.

“My CD's arrived today and I'm on the second playing. Tried to work but quickly gave up. Declared the afternoon an official holiday. I can't pick out a favorite - a song starts and I say, oh yeah! - this one! Want MORE!”
"Outstanding Sherm!!! I love your version of "Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink." Still running around my head and been singing it all afternoon."
