Quote on "The New Beat"

 “The joy apparent in this collection is simply infectious. There will no doubt be many more recordings to come from Michael Benedict Jazz Vibes. The group already sounds like it’s been together for 10 years!”  -Kristian St. Clair, Film Producer of “This is Gary McFarland” -Seattle, Washington
