“For local group Lapis Luna, authenticity goes beyond skin deep. This is a band that not only looks and sounds like a jazz combo from over 50 years ago; they actually could easily be mistaken for one.”
-Robert Sutton, JazzCorner

“The nostalgic atypical repertoire of seldom heard, once forgotten and too often overlooked gems, preserved in their original juice delivered with lots of sass and sauce and captured within a timeless visual vessel. Their focus, respect for the music, composure, and their easy does it manner made their sound quite appealing. They neither wore out nor bored the audience. Quite the contrary, they managed to keep the audience around all evening and even got them out of their seats to dance….I for one.”
