CBC Sound Advice *****
FIVE (5) STARS!!!
"I enjoyed everything about this new
CD. It's a great tribute to a previous age, and
a talented Canadian group of musicians and entertainers. The music
re-creates a thick slice of the vaudeville days, with
many of the original arrangements used, lovingly
performed with the utmost respect and admiration by
the Royal City Saxophone Quartet. Five stars."
-- Rick Phillips, Host/Producer of Sound Advice
on CBC Radio One and CBC Radio Two.
NOTE: Jurgen Gothe of CBC's DiscDrive included the RCSQ on his

CD and true to the original style.
I think it is one of the best sax ensemble historical CDs I have ever
-- David Gibson,
Editor of Saxophone
"Expertly played with style and enthusiasm I am sure the
Brothers would approve of. This is the type of album I never get tired
of hearing. It is happy, upbeat and great fun. It is also true to the
music of the time. I would call it a musical history lesson. The
musicians apparently love what they do because it shows in every song.
Hats off and thanks to the R.C.S.Q. for this first class job in
preserving a musical heritage."
Jim Diffey, KVMR
