"Energetic funk horns bounce into my listening room with gusto...McCormick brings a fresh face to old standards and previews some original compositions that sound like they could easily become jazz standards."

"Reveling in a mash up of Brazilian, Latin, smooth jazz and stops along the way that both speed it up and slow it down, this is what major labels should have had in their mix when they were trying to bring jazz more to the masses."

"Delivering the swinging sounds of Latin, Brazilian and funk-infused music, South Beat is one amazing album from unheralded saxophonist Tom McCormick. The music is aggressive, enthralling and full of energy, a breakout musical statement sure to move some shoulders and hips on South Beach and beyond."

"It was Tom’s tune “Feel the Spirit” that got my vote for personal favorite, ... strong beat, and some great guitar work (Leo Quintero) as well... if you’re not feeling the rhythms of your soul by the time this 6:33 masterpiece is complete, you probably just don’t HAVE any soul – sorry! I give Tom & his cohorts a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"
