What the critics have said about the CD (see the complete reviews at www.bobarthursmusic.com):
“…This is unexpectedly fine music in a gentle but highly sophisticated sound and style.  The music is technically perfect, but more importantly, it is from the heart.”  Amazon.
“…Lamattina and Arthurs may not be household names, but they sure can play. While Jazz for Svetlana may have begun as a present for one fan, it turns out it’s a real gift for all of us fans of fine jazz played with sensitivity and passion.” Blogcritics.org
“…A present by a loving husband to his musical wife turns out to be a substantial present to us – one that won’t be worn out in a year.”  jazzlives.wordpress.com
“…lovely (music) and demonstrates a jazz language in its most intimate form; sincere without worrying about public approval…  In some special way the recording is such that it casts out a seductive net that it never surrenders.” Muzik Zoom. (Italy)
“…The earthy purity in his (Arthurs) tone is what appealed to Svetlana, a classical pianist…And when I say purity, (it’s) the exact kinda thing a working guy wants to hear after a hard day at work, relaxing into the selections, drinking them down like a good wine just before dinner, that kind of purity.”  Folk & Accoustic Music Exchange
“…raw honesty of passion that seems to exude from this release.  Nothing pretentious, nothing self-absorbed and nothing to push the passive listener into the sonic abyss of the overly cerebral.”   Criticaljazz.com
