"HOSTING A PROGRAM IN NEW YORK CITY for WQCD-FM (CD-101.9), I get the opportunity to listen to a lot of new releases. Rarely does a new CD seem so at home in my machine as Flying Colors. This is the kind of record you just know the band had fun recording. It comes right through the speakers and releases your mind, body, and spirit from the craziness outside.”Ian Karr

5 out of 5 starsFlying Colors by Bob Hinz, September 20, 2002—Amazon International reviews

Well orchestrated great piano jazz.

You can truly hear the exceptional talent in these compositions. Not too brassy, smooth, but not too watered down or too mellow. Great background jazz and I don't think that background music is any less an art than that which takes center stage. It's hard to set the right balance of flow to keep it interesting, but not so saturated and vibrant as something center stage; in any case the magic is in these pieces and I recommend them.
