 “Fellove himself is still full of life here. Most importantly, it swings. Too many projects of this type end up overproduced and more slick than alive, but not this one.  Although it  serves as a fitting celebration of the centennial of Fellove’s birth, it also stands on its own merits musically.”

“Joey Altruda?  King of the Cool Ones.  International Playboy.

Painstaking jazz auteur.  The biggest little guy in Hollywood.  Joey’s all these and more, an artist who has lived it up with everyone from Reggae legend Coxson Dodd to New Orleans sax monster, Plas Johnson.”

– L.A. Weekly Writer, Johnny Whiteside
