NEW ALBUM "THE HEALER" OUT NOW ON JAZZHEAD RECORDS!
"Delecca, Howard, Zion and Farrugia have made one of the finest tenor quartet albums I have heard this year – animal strong and caress soft, fiery yellow and cool blue. It is a jazz format that is one of the most satisfying of all within the canon, and they do it so well. So well, in fact, that they deserve your ears. They already have mine."
John Hardaker, Nov 7th, 2013, australianjazz.net
"A truly beautiful and thoughtful album, and unquestionably deserving of our album of the week here at Eastside Radio."
