“All too often, we get so hung up on labels that we forget to listen to the music. With composer/arranger/tenor saxophonist Fred Hess, there's no reason to ask if his big-band sound is adventurous or accessible. The simple answer is that it is both -- and it doesn't take very long listening to his new CD SPEAK to discover what sophisticated, big-band fun is all about.” -

-Norman Provizer, KUVO-FM and Downbeat
