What critics say about this recording:
Mike Mower-Great English saxophonist and leader of the sax quartet Itchy Finger:
"Miles rattles effortlessly through various special techniques available only to the accomplished saxophonist. Stratoshperic but beautifully controlled harmonics laser out of his alto (Saxophonists - forget what mouthpiece he plays - who is this guy:s dentist?)".
Providence Pheonix - "Led by hot soloist and dedicated prof Miles Osland, the Megas join the ranks of other sax ensembles like the World Saxophone Quartet and the 29th Street Saxophone Quartet. They have a blues sensibility - They have precision - They have humor - Be prepared to be impressed!!"
Downbeat - "Here is a monumentally endowed quartet of saxophones. Adventurous in its outlook...but these guys can swing, too!" **** FOUR STARS
Jazz Times -"Wow, these kids can play! Under the obviously inspired tutelage of University of Kentucky sax prof Miles Osland, these Kentuckians strut with a brio energized by classical discipline and derring-do."
Saxophone Journal -"This is a monster of a recording that has really changed the way I think about sax quartets".

What critics say about Saxercise:
Jazz Times - ..."saxophonic splendor, Bravo!!"
Jazz South - "Chops abound, both in performance and compositional craft, with impeccable intonation and tight sectional work in evidence throughout the recording".
Saxophone Journal - "Miles Osland is a consummate saxophonist/woodwind doubler. He sounds completely comfortable with every instrument he plays and is extraordinarily well-versed in each of the different styles he has chosen. Add to this the superb arranging and production skills one can hear on this recording, and you have a package that any artist would be very proud of. I highly recommend Saxercise"!
