"In a perfect pop world, or one even remotely like it, the Uptown Vocal Jazz Quartet would never suffer the indignities referenced on its new album, "Hustlin' for a Gig." Clubs would clamor to book groups half as talented without hesitation and the airwaves would resonate with rich, ingeniously arranged harmonies."- Mike Joyce, The Washington Post
