Reviews:

"Sterman bites off a giant piece

of music with this Gandhi

tribute- and then quickly proves that it's not more than he can chew. Deeply contemplative but also highly melodic."

                     — Boston Herald

 

"Here's some music with a vision.

A gorgeous Raphael-like tapestry

of music... Sterman's tenor is warm and room-filling in its power."

                     — JazzTimes

 

"The eight pieces layer the clear, elegant sax neatly on top of piano, violin, guitar, bass and percussion. [At times] emotionally dense, but the rule of the day is easy flowing grace."

                     — Tom Hull
