"Russ is an exceptional musician and I am proud to call him a friend. He is an accomplished composer, lyricist, arranger and producer but what I love the most about his musicianship is his incredible saxophone performance. He has not only the technical "chops" but his style and tone are second to none, big Texas Tenor sound that is sorely missing from most contemporary saxophone music. I recommend Russ for any endeavor he is pursuing because I know his work style and attention to detail. If you have any further questions about why I endorse Mr. Strathdee, please feel free to connect with me via AvaLemert.com"
