Some Recent Reviews:
"Andy and his all star cast serve this entire musical meal up in the most precise yet playful fashion. Jazz is supposed to be for serious musicians, but fear not, every one of these gents have their chops down and give every genre they represent true justice. When Wit of The Staircase is done you feel like you just got the grand tour of jazz and all the sub genres all in one sitting. This is an excellent listen worth many more spins after the first. You would be well advised to check this out several times before you decide that nothing was missed along the way."
