Here are few reviews from Garage Band Records of their signature soul song 'Cause of it All': Freddie Jackson? Luther? Will Dowing? Nice arrangement, harmonies, horns, very cool vibe and vocals, It's a shame that the market (record companies) are letting all of the good music slip through their fingers. Keep up the good work. - llenrad Oakland, California Nice soul groove I like this stuff. Kind of a tinge of a Latin thing, and the some of the rhythms remind me of Santana. Instrumentally this is great! Vocally it's awesome. Overall, I like it very much! 5 out of 5 - caffn8ted85 Fresno, California Very Familiar. Yes, you can sing. But what impressed me was the music that backed you up. Man! It's very familiar sounding but it's also excellent. Great Sax work. I really liked the arrangement. There's just not enough of this going on in what's become popular today. Keep it commin'! - johnnie5ive Massillon, Ohio Despite their great reviews, TJB must be seen live to be fully appreciated. Mr. Jaye is a captivating performer who always engages the crowd. The bands tight danceable grooves provide a palette for their jam based improvisations.
