“The guitarist Tony Koch takes us back twenty years, but make no mistake, we are not in the repetition. Along with fellow bassist Miles Hill, drummer Bobby Ruggiero, saxophonist Campbell Ryga and Vancouver multi-instrumentalist Miles Black, we sail on the neo-bop, nu jazz, and latin music soundtrack. This mixture of personal speeches and references to the great old fusion merit our ears and distils a certain charm with these well- mixed synthesizers. Tony Koch would also mix poetry on a piece like Rise Up, which comes right after Down by the Bay that sets the scene. And what about the arrival of Who Wants Cool Aid ?, funky wish. These musicians have chosen a direction that we like. Continue in this way, we will accompany you with happiness.” - Bernard Labat, Côte Sud 90.3 FM - Paris, France

“The JDCD Likes Uberchill!!!!!!!!” - Jeff Daniels,SwissGroove Radio - Altstaetten, Switzerland

“The first thing you notice about Tony Koch and the AltNews latest album is the superb musicianship and production. The tunes are crisp and always compelling, My personal favourite is Forgotten, but The Oneness Of All and Where The Heart Lies are quite melodic also. The title track Groove Rangers gives a solid base for the other tunes to build around, Groove Rangers is a nice blend of fusion of funk, jazz, bop, swing and latin beats. There's something for everyone here." - John Holden, 2BACR 100.9 FM, Sydney, Australia
