REVIEWS

It’s the finest example of its kind I’ve ever heard. It’s sublime! —Craig Shropshire, KERA-FM

It uses synthesizers to deepen and enhance the mood rather than to make classical pieces “palatable” or “relevant.” Bravo, Kit. —KEYBOARD

A disarmingly enjoyable album based on deceptively simple music. —JAZZIZ
