“Every once in a while musical magic occurs when a bandleader steps up as a producer. It can be curating on the highest level.  Steven Lugerner has proven this true with his new SLUGish Ensemble release.  He has crafted an album that beams with intention, emotion, compositional maturity, and a masterful use of dynamics and space.” - Allison Miller
