"What we have here is something of a dream band. No, not that all-American-all-star-poll-winners type of dream band. A dream of the star players, their choice of leader-mate, and their choices of support players....These recording sessions were highlights of the careers of the participants. Two words suffice for TOMMY NEWSOM and KEN PEPLOWSKI: it was, and is, ´high time´!"
- arnold jay smith, former editor of Down Beat, celebrating during 1998-9 the XXth season of his "Jazz Insights" lectures at the New School in N.Y.C.
