"Mark Colby's Speaking of Stan, a tribute to Stan Getz, is a project that blasts the modern tribute album. This one is original and honest. Not to mention that, well, Mark can play."

Michael Barton, Chicago Jazz Magazine


"Colby's prominent tenor pulls so many strands of his history with Getz together that you can't help but realize that his love of Getz's musical sound is truly from the heart."



"In saying thanks to Getz, Mark Colby has shown again that he is one of this country’s foremost tenor stylists, one whose voice, no less than Stan’s, deserves to be widely heard and appreciated."
