From smoothjazz.com: a favorable review of Steve's In The Driver's Seat:
That “Bad” vibes “Kat” is back, with his best album yet! Steve Raybine’s created a killer set with IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT, giving jazz vibes fans (And I’m totally there!) something really impressive to sink their musical teeth into. Make no mistake about it, this is World-class jazz - from contemporary to straight-ahead, from solo ballads to funk ala T.O.P., complete with horn section. Steve also includes some compelling excursions into blues and Latin bags, creating even more excitement and depth to this project. Hey, would we expect anything less from Mr. Raybine? To quote Sandy Shore from four years ago, “When we refer to Steve Raybine as an accomplished musician, it's an understatement. Steve is not only a virtuoso vibraphonist, percussionist, and composer/arranger, he is also an instructor and clinician." Bottom line here is this… Steve Raybine’s IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT is a must-have for your music library! - SCOTT O'BRIEN
