Doug Hannah - Nashville
I buy a lot of vinyl to hear that natural sound that seems to be missing from many modern, re-re-re-re mastered recordings, but you up and achieved the same thing in a new recording. Something I know was recorded with care and fidelity as watchwords. That means a great deal to me.
Motoyuki “Yuki” Sugiura - Tokyo
The recording quality was supreme with superb resolution. Every sensitive nuance was captured by the DSD recording from the touch of the fingers, the hammers knocking the piano strings softly and gently, the strings resonating with each other in great harmony, the dynamic vibration of the wooden piano body, and even to the room reverberation. Every element was in such great balance.

Love this album - Hidalgo, Study in E, Gershwin - you are like Bud Powell meets Americana Gospel Virtuoso - with a dash of Debussy :)
Doug Robinson - San Miguel de Allende
This project is a home-run on every level. I don’t have a lot of music in my library for which I could use the following combination of adjectives: elegant, witty, soulful, funky, cinematic, bluesy, and technically impressive. I’d also like to offer a personal thank you for reminding me that a piano has 88 keys – you manage to use all of them.
