"Is it possible to give 6 stars for a review of an album? Rick DiMuzio has put together a fine album and the players on it are top notch. The compositions are excellent; the playing by all is excellent...and let's hope there is a Second Offerings in the future." 
                Brent Plourde - JazzReview.com

"Original compositions alternating with super melodies and wonderful saxophone playing, Rick DiMuzio's recording speaks with great clarity."
                                                                   Danilo Perez- Jazz pianist, composer, & educator

"I have been waiting a long time to hear Rick's CD. He is a masterful player and when you listen to this CD you hear that he is also a masterful composer. He has a very serious side to him that is very detailed and full of integrity. His sound on both tenor and soprano is compelling and makes you listen." 
                                                                  Jerry Bergonzi - Jazz saxophonist, educator, & author
"This is not a listen-and-file CD; it rewards repeated listening. [Rick's] tone...is strong, yet warm and his playing melodic and conversational. DiMuzio's compositions...are very strong melodically."
