Grady Harp, Amazon  

“Jack Mouse is mighty - on the drums, on technique and on assembling a group of pros to bring this body of unique music together….a mixture of the hot new sound with an equal dose of nostalgia.  This quintet plays their hearts out and brings it right off the surface into the space where magic dwells.”    * * * * * (5 stars)​

Jack Bowers, All About Jazz
“A sure-handed, high energy drummer who dazzles with brushes.  A splendid album, well-written (and quarterbacked) by Mouse and well-executed by everyone else.  Thumbs Up!”
