-Chris Dedrick (The Free Design)

"Due soon... Elliot Kendall's consummately eclectic Le Hot Show which mixes beach bop with big band jump blues..."

-Timothy White (Editor, Billboard Magazine)

"Big Band, Rock N' Roll, Jump N' Jive, Skiffle, Swing, Cavern Club Power Pop, it's all here... wow!"

-Bob Crewe (Producer of The Four Seasons)

"Wonderfully inventive, wildly eclectic, Elliot Kendall - Le Hot Show is a musical triumph. A particular favorite is "Everybody Jive", a big beat extravaganza guaranteed to keep dance floors packed from now until the 21st century."

-Ken Sharp (Contributing Columnist to Friday Morning Quarterback and Record Collector Magazine)

"From the first note, this album captures your attention and holds it...wonderful sounds...buy it!"

-David Leaf (Brian Wilson Biographer)

"As a Big Band leader, I can honestly say that Elliot Kendall - Le Hot Show has successfully bridged the gap between Swing and Rock. There's a lot of spirit in these grooves! This is exciting, optimistic music...get it!"

-Bob Keane (President, Del-Fi Records)

"It seems only natural that Elliot Kendall's Le Hot Show would feature such great, well-produced Brian Wilson tributes such as "Symphony For A Sunset", "No Romance Today" and the rad remake of Gary Usher's "Honda Bike". What's surprising is the wild Big Band-cum-Rockabilly sound that he achieves on much of this recording.

Elliot Kendall is more than just a Brian Wilson wanna-be. The man is downright dangerous. He's got his own sound and he knows how to use it."

-A California Saga Magazine

"Honda Bike" is a real killer!! "Symphony For A Sunset" is also superb."

-Goran Tannfelt (Surfers Rule Magazine)

"Le Hot Show finds Elliot Kendall possessing a versatility of the first magnitude. His smooth vocal style is endearing to fans of all genres within the spectrum of pop music, and his songwriting and arrangements are timeless."

-David Bash (Contributing Writer, Audities Magazine)

"Elliot Kendall has taken the best elements of Be-Bop and 'Beach-Bop' to create a new and exciting sound... Le Hot Show est tres bon!"

-Lee Dempsey (Editor, ESQ Magazine)

"Elliot Kendall deserves the world, and the world deserves Elliot Kendall..."

-Jordan Oakes (Editor, Yellow Pills Magazine)

"...an absolute revelation"
