George Benson – I love the way the Mo Jazzin’ album was recorded and the concept. It’s a classic production all around it’s fantastic I even love the CD cover. It really is a very nice project. You really brought those two things together Miles Davis and Marvin Gaye.
Johnny Britt is an amazingly consistent music-maker, providing listeners with tracks that make you immediately want to press ‘repeat’! And his latest release is no different. Way to go, Johnny! Dave Koz
Johnny Britt has done it again with his beautiful & genuine approach to his instrument. This project is action-packed with an array of great featured artist & great music. Two thumbs up! Gerald Albright
