“The Love Supreme statement (in There Is No Greater Love) is classic. Memory Cafe is also great. It is a pleasure to hear a recording using original lyrics and modern jazz arrangements without pandering to a listening audience or going "out" to show how hip they are. Great job.” ” - Ellis Marsalis

— jazz pianist (Ellis Marsalis Trio)

What a refreshing vocal album! From the quick tempo of How Did We End Up Like This, to the bossa nova groove in I've Got A Secret For You, to the ballad When You Were Sent From Heaven, and last but certainly not least, the treatment of Autumn Leaves. Wonderful disc...a pleasure to listen to...again and again...  ” - Ron Carter

— jazz bassist (Miles Davis Quintet)

“I am quite impressed with your singing, particularly the two pieces that you scat on. Very good indeed! Your voice (and phrasing) is a lot like Mel Torme´s, which is meant as a compliment! One of the great singers of our time…”  ” - Ed Thigpen

“Memory Cafe is a wonderful collection of songs played and executed by an all-star cast of Vancouver musicians. As great as they sound however, the highlight of the album is the solo rendition of Autumn Leaves. This has been a staple in Maddock's repertoire since his college days and as many times as I have heard it, its never gets old…”” - Cory Weeds

— jazz saxophonist and owner of The Cellar Jazz Club

In a wonderful balance of past and present, Vancouver vocalist Steve Maddock's Memory Cafe draws from jazz standards as well as songs written by the great Craig Salkeld (even a James Taylor tune) to create this fantastic recording, with Maddock's exquisite style and vocal range showcased beautifully throughout. From Steve's amazing a cappella rendition of 'Autumn Leaves', to the exciting, horn-induced treatment of Salkeld's 'How Did We End Up Like This', Memory Cafe features excellent arrangements played by a who's who of Vancouver's music community. A thoroughly enjoyable CD from this multi-talented artist.” - Kelly Jefferson
