As an avid listener to this CD it struck me how little of this brilliant effort makes it into the samples. Golub consistently takes the listener on a journey with more twists and turns than any Raiders of the Lost Ark movie. It is his genius in combining his ideas, bending the direction and changing the flow of the music that makes his work so worthwhile. Combine that with a fluid and soulful guitar style that matches any sax and you have an experience that gets better and better with each play. A small sample just does not do justice to this music.

You'll love this one! Not only does Jeff astound us with his music, he IS the music. I've had the pleasure of witnessing Jeff in action, live. This was my first encounter with "Avenue Blue" and in my opinion, they stole the show.

I got this CD because "Always There" is a mainstay on most Smooth Jazz stations. After hearing the rest of the CD, I'm glad I got it! Usually, only 3 or 4 of the songs are worth listening to. But all of the songs on this CD are worth hearing. And the orchestra behind Jeff makes the songs more fun. I would definitely recommend this CD to anyone who likes a Smooth Jazz experience with a guitar as the main instrument. Enjoy!

I had alot of fun singing the Al Green song "Daylight" with Jeff and his band for this fine record. He called me in 1996 and asked me to come by (I was living in New York at the time) and record this song. I always liked the jingle bells...Jeff is a great guitarist and he played all the guitars, mandolin & dobro on my "ROAD TO FREEDOM" record (MCA, 1992). Thanks again, Jeff! - Grayson
