“As a former Orlando resident, I’m very familiar with the high level of musical talent that town has to offer. Thus it was no surprise that this record grooved me, moved me, and made me smile! Anchored by the rock-solid groove of the mighty Ron Cangro, (someone I’m blessed enough to not only be friends with, but worked with regularly during my O-town years) these cats bring the groove hot sauce, and if you like David Sanborn, Spyro-Gyra, Scott Henderson & Tribal Tech, and the Yellowjackets, you will LOVE this record!! ~Tim Akers, Nashville, TN
