PRESS:

"Saxist Damon Zick wants you to hang around and listen to his music. He’s not trying to scare you or impress you, just make you feel good. Like many younger musicians, he’s absorbed a wide variety of stuff. Unlike many, he approaches it all with a naturalness and simplicity that unify it – that’s called personality."

- Greg Burk, L.A. Weekly
