"Righteous Chops! When I first listened to Kicks, I heard a Joe Pass speed and precision with a Wes Montgomery round tone. Before his death, Joe Pass stated that the mantle of his brand of jazz would be passed on to Mimi Fox. Her ability and musicianship certainly support this"! -C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz "While Fox makes her first impression with her technical skills, it's her emotional depth as a player that leaves an enduring mark"! -Andrew Gilbert, Downbeat Magazine
