" Jeff and the Jazz band have proven themselves to be a quartet to be reckoned with. They unleash their mastery over 10 songs that will leave your searching for their first album. "

Doug Morrissey,

" Jeff and the Jazz band are frequent and admired contributors to the Washington, DC jazz scene. This is a quartet steeped in a 21st century style of hard bop that still values solid melody lines, probing improvisation, and, when called for, sheer beauty. "
