Angie’s Samba CD Reviews

Angie’s Samba is a collection of “feel good tunes” for any weather!”
Lisa Rogers Percussive Notes Magazine-August 1999

“Call this lite Latin jazz. I liked “New Year 95 Blues,” and the playing of flutist Herb Kloss…”
Marcela Breton Jazz Times-October 1999

“It’s a album of 10 brightly performed, straight ahead originals by Damberg-Latin dance tunes, blues numbers, and Caribbean-influenced pieces.”
Peter Monaghan-Earshot Jazz Editor-May 2000

“Your Music is like a warming wind over the frozen sidewalks! Cool, clear, well-played and well-recorded. Great Job!”
Jeff Brown: Music Director-KTOO Radio- Juneau, AK

Angie’s Samba is a well thought out and beautifully engineered compact disk. I made our jazz producers aware of Angie’s Samba and in a few words they fell in love with it. “
Donald Nelson: Music Director KSKA Radio-Anchorage, AK

“Damberg’s created a delightfully breezy set complemented with lilting flute, hot guitar, and a strong Latin rhythm section.” “The album succeeds in creating a solid but gentle groove that consistently swings, especially on the title cut, Angie’s Samba. “ “The album represents a long process developing a group sound unlike the sax and piano direction of standard jazz combos.”
Ray Funk host of “Funk Roots” on KUAC-FM-Fairbanks, AK

“Nice Job! Whoever said Alaska was cold?!”
Victor Mendoza-Vibist & Instructor Berklee School of Music
