“An out and out demonstration of saxophone virtuosity. Piano, bass, drums – who needs ‘em? ” – Lance Liddle (Bebop Spoken Here)
“Saxophonics played their own work, great sweeping pieces that skitted and scintillated, soulful and sizzling, although they also did one or two more recognisable pieces, including an impressive version of Come Fly With Me.” – Duncan Leatherdale (Northern Echo)
