WAYNE ALPERN/Jukebox:  If this album cover makes you think this is a white people’s version of that old Marvin Gaye album cover where a party is in full swing, you’d be on the right track.  A lawyer from Detroit that never lost touch with his musical side is the producer/arranger behind this wind quintet take on American classics that could have easily been kitschy, gift shop dreck but is anything but.  A lovely work out that could be the soundtrack for something civilized like tea time, this bunch is expert at hitting all the right notes and there’s nary a harp in ear shot.  And the diverse, densely packed track list is anything but lame.  Quite the unexpected good time. (Henri Elkan)

Since 1988 Kari-On Productions has helped artists get an even footing in the industry through jazz promotion in the genres of Jazz, World & Latin Jazz through Jazz Radio and Publicity. Why do we do both, because they compliment each other, and we care about fiscal longevity for the artist.
