"I think people need an escape hatch. I think it's in their mind. They can escape to happiness. I can lift the spirits of all the listeners world-wide. It will be a beautiful distraction. The harmony from that distraction may lift them out of the negative, and that gives me the sense of accomplishment that I've led them to that point. I'm just the messenger, here's the message." ~Edmund Simental - Feel the vibe!
"5 stars is just not enough for the cd. Midnight Rendezvous is totally bliss SOUL MEETS JAZZ, the vocals from Costie Payne just lifts it to another plain… this track is the money shot! No question about it... don’t let it slip away.... buy it now." ~Dave W from Starpoint Radio.com (London)
