Free your ears, and your mind will follow.
"I like your bumblebee song. It makes me want to suck nectar from a psychedelic flower. It makes me want to dance with a blue meanie while eating magic mushrooms. It's great to hear how you're continuing to explore and expand your musical horizons." (Keith Meldahl, geologist)
"I was indeed intrigued by the compositional aspect, but the running of the mouth focused on a narrower aspect, hence my lack of depth in editorial comment. Maybe I was on acid." (Alan Nemeth, jazz drummer extraordinaire, Cleveland, Ohio)
"I love this stuff , modern Weather Report - ish." (Mike Sharfe, jazz bassist extraordinaire, Cincinnati, Ohio)
