"Without question, this young musician and his band from Chicago caught the ears of listeners throughout the nation after taking the Chicagoland music scene by storm. The unique blend of a Hammond Organ and Trumpet added a robust collection of musical sounds never quite fully developed by earlier artists. Just simply great music!"
