“There are jazz, electronic and dance acts - and then there is Count Basic, the pair that sparked the trend of fusing such aforementioned genres together. Peter Legat keeps the grooves going with his great array of guitar wizardry and songs that we can all relate to. While Kelli Sae’s vocals can either leave you looking for the shoes you got knocked out of, or chilling out to her seductive vocals.” – P. Edelstein of AXS
