"John's playing and this project in general are a cut above the norm, and they will definitely hold your attention with their excellence." Fred Berry, Director of Northern California Louie Bellson Orchestra

"Telling a story, making a musical statement is something too often forgotten by the artist as they are at times, too concerned with only their playing. Thank you John for reminding me, once again, what making music is all about" Tom E. Politzer Lead Tenor, Tower of Power

"Finally the world gets a chance to experience the music of one Bay Areas best kept secrets. Worley has been active in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 15 years as one of that areas first called trumpet players capable of doing it all. Whether playing lead, or soloing in the bop style or sharing his vast knowledge with his numerous students, John brings a fresh approach to it all. This CD covers styles from straight ahead jazz, to Afro Cuban and all ports in between. Worley's music is from the heart. The heart of a man who has paid his dues as a Journeyman. My favorite music is always performed by those that come from a place of maturity and experience. These are the true story tellers. Please do as I did. Take off your shoes, sit back, relax and enter into the musical journey called "Worlview". You'll keep coming back-" Peace, Ray Vega, The Bronx, 2002

outstanding musicianship and great selections
I've know John as an outstanding jazz musician for many years, but I'm just amazed by his first album. John has pulled together a rich collection of pieces, and some amazing veteran musicians, in addition to his own considerable talent. I can't wait for more!
