"Teri has an intuitive laid back sense of time reminiscent of Abbey Lincoln and Betty Carter but with her own uniqueness." Jack DeJohnette (NEA Jazzmaster & Legendary Drummer)
"Canadian-bred John Menegon is in the line of George
Mraz and Michael Moore; a harmonically sophisticated bassist with technical facility who swings hard when it's called for." Kirk Silsbee, Downbeat
"She (Teri Roiger) is made for those who still understand the meaning of the term the real thing." Stanley Crouch (Author & Cultural Critic)
"John Menegon's SEARCH LIGHT is witty, atmospheric, and thoroughly engaging from one end to the other. Menegon shows, without self-indulgence, that the bass can define the character of an ensemble as clearly and fully as any other instrument." Steven Robinson, AllAboutJazz
