SKILLFUL SMOKING JAZZ WONDERS ~ "Pure joy....The volcanic arrangement Dave created for the band’s performance of Stevie Wonder’s Too High is pure pleasure to listen to...this is (absolutely) the BEST performance of this classic tune I’ve ever listened to.  MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with a (perfect) “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 5.00 ...
also gets a “PICK” from me for “best jazz ensemble”.
