Hi Jim,

Roberta is the most exciting and refreshing new voice in jazz music
today and is getting the love she deserves.  I haven't seen one
dissenting voice about her talent on this panel and in my own shop.

Agreed,  Bobby, and all the more reason to get behind the ones who ARE 
really good and hold the torch high!  What do you think of Roberta?

''It goes without saying that FRANK SINATRA could have enlisted the
services of any accompanist he wanted. The fact that he chose RUSS
KASSOFF speaks volumes about Kassoff's unequivocal artistry, which is
splendidly showcased on SOMEWHERE'' (Jack Bowers-AAJ).  After almost 40
years as a professional musician, KASSOFF's first album as a leader
features his serene beauty, intriguing style, and vivid concepts as an
outstanding composer and gifted improviser.  With MARTIN WIND (bass) and
TIM HORNER (drums), ''SOMEWHERE is vibrant, compelling, and destined to
become an essential component of collections that favor jazz trios''
(Paula Edelstein-AMG).  ''Performed with class and a fine touch''
(Marion McPartland), ''SOMEWHERE is a masterpiece'' (Bucky Pizzarelli).
