What the critics say:
• “Lucas’s music is heart-centered and a spirit connection is established between he and the listener.” Lyndah Malloy-Glover – Abyss Jazz Magazine
• “Dee Lucas has done a marvelous job of re-creating the instantly recognizable style and legacy of George Howard, while at the same time putting his own unique signature on each fresh, new performance…” Scott O’Brien – Smoothjazz.com
