“Delivering the swinging sounds of Latin, Brazilian and funk-infused music, South Beat is one amazing album from unheralded saxophonist Tom McCormick. The music is aggressive, enthralling and full of energy, a breakout musical statement sure to move some shoulders and hips on South Beach and beyond.” – Edward Blanco, All About Jazz
