“Vine Street Rumble is one of the swingingest outfits that I have heard in a long time! They are doing a wonderful thing by keeping alive the spirit of the great Kansas City bands of the past like Count Basie’s Orchestra, Bennie Moten’s Orchestra, and even the more obscure bands like the one led by reed man Harlan Leonard.”
— Vincent Pelote, Head of Technical Services/Sound Archivist, Institute of Jazz Studies - Rutgers University
