—Floyd Levin , jazz journalist, lyricist and producer, whose new book Classic Jazz: A Personal View (University of California Press) has received wide praise from critics.
"This CD, under Tommy Newsom's own name, is a long-overdue validation of his true stature. The tempos may vary, the moods may change - but the key word that describes Tommy's playing is always - "taste!" ...this is a unique CD expertly played by six skilled instrumentalists intent on establishing and maintaining an integral sound that, above all —swings!"
