Media name: Barry O'Sullivan Company name: BLU FM 89.1 Date: 2007-07-21 Feedback: This music is just plain beautiful! I was so pleasantly surprised by this album, with its haunting gentle melodies ,superb musicanship and composition that I have featured several tracks from it on my national jazz program which is broadcast weekly across Australia via the Community Radio Network to over 120 stations. I loved the piano of Scott Earl Holman and the subtle techniques that he and the percussion player (Rusty Jones) employ throughout the album."Noble One " is a favourite as is "The Smile" but I love the whole album, each and every track! I will continue to feature tracks from this little gem forever on the program. Thank you for this beautiful gift. It definitely won't wake the kids.

Ken Irwin Jazz Music Director - WMUA ----- Media name: Carlos Mantilla Company name: Universidad Industrial de Santander Date: 2007-08-13 Feedback: Without seeking to say that it is a conceptual album "don't wake the kids" maintains thematic unit. Averagely, this album could be heard same that a mass but in jazz time. The music played by Scott Earl Holman's trio, suggests much of the gender cool tendency. It also supposes dramatism, an excellent handling of the time and of the space and great melodic invention around the topics that compose the disk. It is interesting to appreciate as it intertwines and develops almost consequently and we can to read it in the way that Holman seems to suggest it: "The Lord's causes is to Noble One and His Children it dances at the thought of marching in his band waiting to see the smile on the face of God." Carlos Mantilla JAZZ CLUB 96.9 FM Bucaramanga, Colombia ------------ Media name: D. Oscar Groomes Company name: O's Place Jazz Magazine Date: 2007-08- Feedback: Scott Earl Holman - Don’t Wake The Kids " This is a large trio led by pianist and writer Holman. Pawel Jarzebski (b) and Rusty Jones (d) combine notes with Scott to produce a larger than expected sound. Pawel leads the way into "Noble One" with an excellent solo. We liked the cool pace of "His Children Dance". "The Thought" is one of two solos that are calm and thought provoking. They contrast with the upbeat and eclectic sounds of "The Smile". The sound is excellent, enhancing a good performance. -- D. Oscar Groomes O's Place Jazz Newsletter Naperville, IL ------------- Media name: Robert Lochmann Company name: Radio X (Frankfurt), DJ Jazzmadass Date: 2007-08-09 Feedback: Thanks for this beautiful, funny and highly recommendable album.
