"A joyous, vibrant and emotive collection of fine and heartfelt performances. Stumptown Swing qualifies as one of the year's best jazz recordings.

With this recording, Tim Connell has announced his arrival as a world-class mandolinist.  His technique on the mandolin has never been better and he coaxes tone by the buckets out of his instrument.

Ben Blechman's solos swing and soar through the tunes that alternate between sweetness and melancholy and are always perfectly rendered."

--Mandolin Magazine, April 2014

"...a great collection of continental swing, samba and standards...rich chord progressions, nice melodies and comfy grooves.  Mike and Tim are the right cats for the job!!

--Don Stiernberg, Chicago, IL
