Of the Ruby & Smith album ‘a ukulele album’
“the best part of A Ukulele Album are the nine originals, with equal measures of traditional and new.” Kenny Berkowitz, Ukulele Magazine. Read whole review

Of the Black Gardenia album ‘Lucky Star’ (#2 in the NACC jazz charts)
“Transporting listeners back to a time of martinis, lounge suits, and hazy cigarette smoke, all with an audio clarity that eludes remastered editions of jazz classics, Black Gardenia offers authoritative modern versions of those staples. The fact that Roubini’s originals are indistinguishable among the stacked lineup is the biggest compliment of all.”
Georgia Straight, Read whole review
