The Daily Review
"...But the most remarkable of all is Janis. He is astonishingly good - the finest trombonist I saw at the jubilee. By the end of the second day, the Beverly Hills bunch were the word-of-mouth hit of the festival. Conrad Janis and the Beverly Hills Unlisted Jazz Band is as close to "Ricks Cafe" Americain in "Casablanca" as you will find."
