Pastor’s work on “The Holywell Session” is just as good, and he’s in fine company. The trio tracks, with Steve Kershaw and Richard Lee Harris, throb with introspection Harris letting each piano sonority float and disappear before offering another. Check out the way he ends “Part 3”, the quietest low-register rumble fading away into nothing, or his gorgeous opening to “Part 4”. The quintet tracks forge a more brutal path, the group occasionally dipping into the gutbucket with Haslam growling appropriately. It is always refreshing to hear Harry Beckett’s airy but forceful contribution, and he adds a lot to this fine performance. Marc Medwin Cadence July 2008.

“…They are exactly the agreement between the five musicians, the great interplay, the wonderful creative tension to amaze more. What ask more to a totally improvised music that on the unforeseeablety and the instantaneous creation builds itself? Between free jazz and swing echoes, Mingus’ atmospheres and a characteristic British taste (always magically suspended between different expressive ways), the disc shows a set of stylistic traits able to reach a large and transversal audience.”
Marco Maiocco – Disco Club – September 17 2007

“…sono proprio l’intesa fra i cinque, il grande interplay, la meravigliosa tensione creativa, a colpire maggiormente. Cosa chiedere di più ad una musica del tutto improvvisata che sull’imprevedibilità, la creazione del momento costruisce se stessa? Tra free jazz, echi di swing, atmosfere mingusiane e un inconfondibile tocco british (sempre magicamente sospeso tra diverse formule espressive), il disco inanella una serie di tratti stilistici capaci di raggiungere un pubblico ampio e trasversale…”
