“Sam’s nonet also gets superb support from alto sax Doug Angelaccio and Pianist Pete Benson as the group plays beautifully on Billy Strayhorn’s “A Flower Is A Lonesome Thing,” and Burckhardt’s own title composition” – G.E. Murray, Jazz Institute of Chicago

“One of the original court members of the Mighty Blue Kings, Sam Burckhardt has also been making music since the early seventies, including collaborations with blues and jazz artists Sunnyland Slim, Erwin Helfer, Pinetop Perkins, Jimmy Rogers and Yoko Noge.” – Dave Chamberlin, New City, Chicago
