"Hotlanta coveys the charm and power of the music...the music pulls the listener in with its infectious rhythms and flights of improvisation, providing a glimpse of the excitement and creative energy of an earlier America" Richard Mills

THE DAILY GAZETTE McCook, Nebraska
"Improvisation is the heart of this music and Hotlanta showed that they were up to making it happen. Dixieland is a true American form that has provided the basis for so many other types of popular music. It was a treat to hear it presented so well and with a lot of class." Jon Wacker
