"Peaslee takes full advantage of Alessi's versatility and strength with a spectacular jazz-influenced test of virtuosity that few trombonists will ever be able to play." American Record Guide, February, '97
"Alessi's warm compact sound and easy flexibility allow him to cruise through even the most demanding of these works seemingly without difficulty, and the level of musicianship is naturally first class."
The Online Trombone Journal, Fall '97
