Top Notch !
Bawls kicks ass


A saxy voice !
As it is often the case with David Garfield related CD, the material presented is a) varied and b) of top notch quality.

"Retro-spect" is a very good contemporary jazz album blending many different "jazz" styles including some fusion. The songwriting is excellent and Klimas proves to be a very versatile player.

Fans of Tom Scott, Brandon Fields and Steve Tavaglione check it out. It is worth your hard earned $.

Nancy Stencil

Great sax from a very sexy sax player!
Great blend of jazz. Alot of talent in this! Great to see some names in there like Nick Lane and Chicago's Jason Sceff and Bill Champlin.
