*From the ITG Journal, June 2008:
"With rhythm section accompaniment, these four interesting arrangements serve as a brilliant way of showcasing four players. Each of the arrangements provides different challenges, as well as an interesting and engaging way to feature a big band trumpet section or trumpet quartet...Their first-rate editions of (Mike Vax's) unique arrangements provide a new and interesting sub-category in the trumpet ensemble repertoire."
- Luis Engelke
**From the ITG Journal, Jan 2010:
"These four editions will work extremely well in performance, or they could easily be used to teach style and ensemble skill in a masterclass or trumpet ensemble setting. The inclusion of these new editions to Triplo's other more challenging arrangements from TRPTS Jazz Quartet Series brought together with James Olcott's Fourteen Recreational Jazz Quartets provides a wealth of repertoire from one publisher for this emerging genre."
