DIG THE REVIEWS:
"Calagna is such an able and winning performer, he captures and makes Buckleys riffs sing. There is, in fact, a musical quality to them that he captures beautifully."
Howard Kissel (New York Daily News)
"Seeing Calagna work the room at the intimate Monkey's Paw in the Village is to behold not merely a performer at the top of his game, but a Buckley oracle. A lot of fun is Calagna's interplay with the sharp jazz quartet led by drummer Joe Piazza. Jazz and poetry can be a dicey mix at best but this alchemy is a match made in Valhalla as sound and sensibility merge in rare harmony."
Oliver Trager (Buckley Biographer)
