"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!”

I’m so impressed by the fullness of the sound of the arrangements, and the feel they immediately gave to me. Very inspired and inspiring music! A kind of energy that is very very rare in the context of contemporary music.

"The vocal talent, tone and musicianship were obvious.  Great first song choice!  Set my expectations high ... and there was no disappointment.  I can't really add to what the others have written about your CD but I know great music and mojo when I hear it!  I've just heard it."

"Great stuff. 'Since I Fell for You' --- KILLER!  Vocals are spot-on, and the arrangements are solid.  'Whiter Shade of Pale' --- never would have imagined it working without the organ, but damned if it doesn't reach right out and grab you."

"Great CD.  Nice jazz sort of style mixed in there with the folk. The song that surprised me the most was 'The Harder They Come.'  It would never have occurred to me that you could take a Reggae number like that and so totally reinterpret it and make it your own.  I loved your version."

"Hmm, he sounds like a Cleveburg hipster to me.  Seriously, mine came in the mail today and I've been loading it on all my computers.  Very nice, well done, all."
