"Sonny LaRosa's America's Youngest Jazz Band's performance at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, certainly apparent by the packed crowds you drew! Congratulations to you all! We look forward to bringing you back to New Orleans!"
Karen Konnerth, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival
"Sonny LaRosa should be given the Medal of Freedom for the work he is doing with what must be the youngest jazz musicians in the world. Not only has he taught them each on their own instruments, but he has molded them into a truly remarkable unit. When you see the pride which is reflected in these youngsters' faces and the way they stand tall and ready to strut their stuff, you will know why I give Sonny so much credit for what he has done with these budding musicians. This gives you hope for the future of culture and the arts in this country."
Dave Leibman, legendary saxophonist who played in the Miles Davis group and toured with Chick Corea; and founder of the International Association for Jazz Schools in Europe
