DAILY HAMPSHIRE GAZETTE
Continued rave reviews for Rob's latest CD, "Comencio" on Steeplechase Records:
"Here we have the inventiveness of John Coltrane, the swagger of Dexter Gordon and the lyricism of Ben Webster and this reviewer loved it."
JAZZ VIEWS (UK)
"Rob Scheps is one of myriad musicians deserving of wider recognition and more frequent opportunities to record as a leader. Don’t overlook this strong session."
