Such Is Life

“One cannot help but be impressed by this music.  The musicianship is top-notch, the performances unpredictable and full of surprises, and Eric Starr’s writing is consistently inventive.”  – Scott Yanow, Jazz Critic 

“Everything is fresh about this disc…Nothing gets in the way of this music’s freshness and charm.”  – Jeff Simon, The Buffalo News
