What Does Mark Murphy Think?

"Just saw Mark at performance in Los Angeles. I said to him across the room, "You know what's your best album, Mark (he must have 30 to 40 out there)?" He said, "What?" I said, "Song for the Geese." He rushed over to me and shook my hand saying, "That's how I feel." Walking away he lamented, "But it's so hard to find that one."
As a great lover of music and as a musician,I know Mark is so very wonderful. I must have 25 of his albums. This is his best. One of my five desert island picks. So beautiful it gives chills. Consider yourself very lucky to find it."
Mark is oh, so under-appreciated

"This CD gives what could be considered uneven or with a little bit
in different directions to please on a variety of scales. I am one who believes the latter. From the easy flowing, "You go to my head", to the scat filled and upbeat, "Baltimore Oriole". I love the smooth beginning to the Steely Dan tune, "Do it again" before he steps it up to a faster groove. Mark is in great voice and style with "It's just talk,"
and "Blase". This is a great effort, one of Mark's best.
This song is all right!!

"This is definitely one of Mark's best releases in the last 15 years. Working closely with Roger Treece to create great background vocals Mark's voice shines and glimmers. Cuts of particluar interest should include "Song for the Geese", it's just talk, J.J. Johnson's "Lament", and Sugar. Listen to the harmonicly thick background vocals which help create this lush texture."
