Reviews

 

20/04/2017 ***Selwyn Harris, Jazzwise

'...there's an intense drive and energy to the performances...the collective exuberance and honest musicianship are something to be appreciated.'

 

24/03/2017 Dave Gelly, The Observer ****

'Of all wind instruments, the saxophone has the most flexible, almost human, tone of voice, and it’s Scott’s mastery of this that makes these 12 pieces so appealing. The variety of sound and mood is astonishing.'

'The cardinal virtues of the album, which features the saxophonist plus a big cast of players including pianist Gwilym Simcock, saxophonist Rob Buckland, bass guitarist Laurence Cottle and baritonist Chris Caldwell, are its sheer skill, passion and meatiness.'

'When each musician is giving the space to play, the result is spell-bending and proves that an orchestra of saxophones can be easily as effective as more conventional groupings.'
