Notes & Reviews:

Amassing critical acclaim, Todd Yukumoto is establishing himself as one of the preeminent voices on the saxophone. Saxophonist and staff arranger for the Royal Hawaiian Band, Yukumoto also tours with the Harvey Pittel Saxophone Quartet and is on the faculty of the University of Hawaii.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
He creates a striking atmosphere. McElhaney, on the other hand, is a highly polished and sensitive performer, boasting superb touch, clarity, and control. Her soft playing is haunting and breathtaking, and while a handful of loud passages could use more volume, she gives each phrase drive and color.
