Hey ... Introducing Musette Explosion was #6 on Billboard's Jazz Album charts the week of Nov. 29th, 2014.
"... swings with speed and clarity, sways with mystery and eroticism....Not simply an archeological paean to past masters, this debut recording from Musette Explosion makes the genre relevant to NYC's musical landscape."
-- Elliott Simon, New York City Jazz Record
"Musette ... has a dynamic vehicle in this ensemble."
-- Nate Chinen, New York Times
"This group does not restructure the repertoire's foundation; they handle it all in their own way. [Musette Explosion] has respectfully reclaimed 1930s Paris for the 21st Century." -- Aaron Cohen, Downbeat
