“The focal point of the group is Lou Marini…he gives the band most of its colors and shadings, and provides it with a strongly melodic lead voice…Marini moves through these various settings with chameleon-like adaptability, playing with a strong, full projection and rich perceptive shading in whatever style he happens to find himself.”
John Simon, New York Times
