CD Review: I listened to this project for about 60 seconds before I determined that I was listening to a potential 2006 Muse's Muse Award winner for best Jazz artist. With Victor Magnani on guitar; George Coleman Jr on drums; Marty Rizek on bass; and Don Braden on Tenor sax, the Rivington Project is not only rivetting, it's a true Jazz lover's treat. Turning in what they describe as a musical gumbo of Jazz, Rock, Funk, and experimental music, these New York based musicians consistently display superlative composition skills and a myriad of influences that mesh together and comprise a solid project that can be enjoyed from start to finish.

Advice: You guys are pros - and you know it. Keep doing what you're doing. Just do more of it.
