"The CD is FABULOUS!!!!!!!!  I am VERY impressed...The tunes/compositions are of top quality, and the engineering is just SUPERB!!!  EXCELLENT sound (for ALL instruments, not just drums - though the drums DO sound particularly sweet, I must say...!!! :) As do the cymbals!!!) Great job!!!"

-
Fernando A. Meza (Director of Percussion Studies - University of Minnesota)
 

"Working with Scotty Horey and his band of musical aces was a great experience… Their combination of chops, humor and professionalism made for a great session. It was amazing watching the intricacies of their arrangements unfold and on top of that - they just plain rock!"

- Kevin Bowe (Producer/Engineer - IPR)
