Endorse Eleanor Norton
  1. Review by Steven Diedrich

    Eleanor is extraordinary. Her cello tracks are excellently recorded and her cello I'm sure is insured for many thousands of dollars. The quality of her execution is top level by someone who has not only mastered orchestral and quartet playing, but also pop, swing, rock and other styles. The full tool kit and a complete pleasure to work with! I will again!!
