"Wide, warm, weird, analog, funky, soulful, and deep, "Secret Place" gives us an idea of what has been going on in Justin's Stanton's head all these years. This is an incredibly varied- though cohesive- debut from a rich (and normally understated) musical personality. As a composer, producer, arranger, keyboardist, and trumpeter, his abilities are finally on full display." Michael League (Snarky Puppy)
