"Pianist Jon Regen's latest album, "Stop Time," has a rather impressive cast of supporting characters: producer Mitchell Froom and long-time Elvis Costello collaborators Davey Faragher and Pete Thomas. And while his jazz roots are certainly evident in the album's impeccable rhythmic base, songs such as the lovely "Run To Me"--an affecting expression of vulnerable love--hew closer to Costello, Howard Jones or even Bruce Hornsby."

When songwriter Jon Regen was married last year, his wedding song was a tune co-written by Chaka Khan and Bruce Hornsby.

Regen’s new record Stop Time gets an extra shot of grit, featuring members of Elvis Costello’s band the Imposters.

"Throughout it all, Regen is the star: possessing a sly wit and nimble touch, he slides into lyrical solos without losing sight of his songs, a skill that gives this album a rich, lasting resonance."
