Some things folks just had to say about the 1st CD, It's Me!

"His songs betray a kind of whimsy. They're clever both lyrically and musically, and that's something that's always in short supply."
—James E. Fowler, Los Angeles Times

"Ritt's tongue is firmly lodged somewhere between his cheek and his bass strings...Vaudeville lives! And check out his reggae version of 'Sunshine on My Shoulders.' High points for bravado!" —Ron Garant, Bassics magazine

"A gumbo of yummy song styles—very clever, tuneful and totally delicious!"
—Ellen Bloom, Friday Night Blues Revue, KPCC-FM, Pasadena, CA

"I've listened to it about a dozen times. I think it's one of the coolest things I ever received." —Lisa Dawn Popa, Cabaret Catalog

"It's really enjoyable...[a blend of] Warren Zevon, Dan Hicks and Rob Wasserman." —David Mitson, Sony Music

"It's Me! really delivers...The lyrics come on like a bear. 'Just Another Glimpse of You' should be a standard."
—Jim Beloff, Associate Publisher, Billboard

"Very original music...with a lot of laughs and a serious message...It's just nice to see the bass being used in a new and different way. I've been playin' it for some people and everybody's really diggin' it." —Harvie Swartz, bassist & educator

"Ritt is a very good upright bassist who writes comedic songs that still retain their musical integrity. This CD is a laugh will laugh until your stomach aches. Guaranteed." —Bass Frontiers magazine

"[Ritt's reggae version of] 'Sunshine on My Shoulders' just may be the world's greatest John Denver cover." —Mike Kelsey, WFHB-FM, Bloomington, IN

"I listened to the CD last night as soon as I got home; enjoyed every minute of it—the humor and the music and the underlying humanity. Looking forward to more." —Joan Carl, another satisfied customer

"My favorite song is 'Zen & the Art of Waiting in Line.'...The booklet inside the case is really artistic." —Catherine Basile, Uncle Ritt's Goddaughter
