“Guitarist Tyler Cooney leads an exceptional group…featuring a program of attractive contemporary originals. This is well recorded, thoughtful modern jazz, played by a trio of likeminded musicians. There’s lots to like on this recently [recorded] cd, so kick off your shoes, relax and enjoy the music!” – Mike Nock
