Motor City Jazz Octet

...the octet ... is sharp and well-grounded on every number, ...every solo is strong and engaging. The rhythm section, anchored by drummer Joe Syrian, does its part to enliven the party... Syrian is especially impressive thumping the tom toms on a Latin-flavored version of "All or Nothing At All".” - D. Oscar Groomes
