"B’s Bees carries on the Hard Bop torch passed down from Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers and Thelonious Monk with reverence and imagination. Not content to simply imitate, the band, under the leadership of Brandon Goodwin, forges ahead with strong writing and accomplished arrangements. Live on stage, they’re poised and professional, and they pack all the punch of veteran straight ahead jazz musicians."
Larry Stahlberg, Host of Jazz Straight Ahead, WERU-FM
"They are producing some important 21st Century Jazz."
Josef Woodard (Author of Conversations with Charlie Haden, DownBeat Contributor)
"If the sound of Montreal jazz group B's Bees reminds you of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, it might be because of the similar spirit."
