“Micic is bringing an intriguing new perspective to the jazz guitar.”—The New York Times
“Steve Cardenas is an earthbound jazz guitarist, more at home with the stir of a rhythm section than the whoosh of solo heroics. This makes him a pervasive but subtle presence on the scene.”
—The New York Times
