Gutsy, gritty and grabbing is the way I would describe the Shotgun Jazz Band... straight-ahead New Orleans jazz of the first order—no tricks or gimmicks here”

"...Everyone in the band is at the top of their form through all 16 of these delightful cuts. Trumpeter Marla Dixon is exciting as usual as one of the dozen or so women around playing first-class jazz on a horn... Charlie Halloran’s gut-bucket trombone is a perfect match in the front line, along with the moaning saxophone and Dodds-like clarinet of James Evans."

"The Shotgun Jazz Band plays with a certain attitude that is right on and refreshing. It’s edgy but not off-putting. Many times you hear traditional jazz done with the attitude that panders to the tourists and has the vibe of “Really, in the grand scheme of things, nobody likes this music so please like us.” The Shotgun Jazz Band has a little more punk rock that comes off as “We know we’re good and this is great music, so if you don’t, tough luck.”
