“Fred Jackson’s effort is a loaded Urban Jazz Funk set with an infectious yet melodious backbeat. The Sax, Guitar and Organ counter play will leave you, as it did me, with the fully satisfied goofy grin that is associated with musical ecstasy. The engineers and players achieved that rare balance of musical perfection, solid performance, elite skill of instrument, and sonic grandeur. The most striking element of the reproduction is the grind and weight of the Hammond B-3. This thing nearly sawed me in half! The tone of the Leslie and the action of the keys and pedals is absolutely in the room. So far, this is not only the biggest surprise of the Blue Note offerings but also it may well outstrip the other recordings, which are exceptional!” – Rich Brown, Klipsch Audio Technologies
“…As much as I’d love to relay all kinds of anecdotes about the challenges Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray encounter during the mastering sessions, I witness none. These boys know the sound of the facility and the Van Gelder masters like the backs of their hands…Back home a month later, I unpack some test pressings Chad Kassem has sent me…I hear the most realistic-sounding drums ever reproduced by my system. It’s as though I’m sitting at the point of creation, experiencing the same high that brought such gifted musicians together as one. Steve Hoffman, Kevin Gray, Chad Kassem, and Don MacInnis have done Rudy Van Gelder and his Blue Note artists proud.” – Jason Victor Serinus, Stereophile, April 2008.
