Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review publishes reaction to SUSTAIN vol.2:

"The more disparate and numerous the musical items an anthology contains,

the harder it is to write about it in some ways.

Yet if the music speaks one must cast some light on it all."

" ...here is one that has gotten my attention.

It is Sustain, Vol. 2: Solo Piano and Chamber Works (Navona NV6345)."

" Jim Puckett's "Nocturne" for tenor sax and piano gives is a reflective lyricism

that stands up and demands to be heard."
