“One of 2011’s most pleasing new discoveries…a remarkably mature and assured statement from such a young musician… If he can maintain these standards he is surely destined to become a major figure on the UK jazz scene” Ian Mann The Jazz Mann

“the lyrical sway of Andy Sheppard, the atmospherics of Jan Garbarek, the pensiveness of Kenny Wheeler and the country-chime of early Keith Jarrett…. this quartet are players of real promise”
John Fordham, The Guardain

“Dawning is one of the most fascinating and beautiful releases of the year so far, and it's a quite stunning debut effort for such a young group of musicians.” Rainlore’s World of Music

“This is a lovely album with all the players sounding very comfortable with the music.
This album should be heard and bought” Kenny Wheeler

“Dawning introduces an engaging young saxophonist.. with a soulfulness which seems to have been surgically removed from many young Jazz Studies alumni” Chris May, all about jazz

“This is an accomplished debut that places the emphasis firmly on the melodic side of jazz playing and as such it is one of the most enjoyable listens of the year thus far” Tim Stenhouse Uk Vibe

“This is an honest, cohesive and sophisticated release - a band to listen out for in 2011 and a credit to the F-ire collective "Iain Ballamy

“Engaging debut from the Wheeler and Ballamy-backed saxophonist”
Kenny Mathieson The List

“Martin's is an affecting, attractively fragile approach… which imparts considerable warmth and emotion” Chris Parker, London jazz

“Like Adam Waldmann’s Kairos 4tet, John Martin’s band play with a great deal of melody in mind, and a narrative flow to their improvisations, as well as strong group cohesion.”
Peter Bacon jazz Breakfast

The artwork was painted from the music by Jon Braley, who was a finalist in 2010 for the prestigious John Moores painting prize.
