Reviews

As refreshing to the spirit as home made apple pie a la mode!

George Harris, Jazz Weekly

All gone now, this generation, yet when I walk on the grass around Ally Pally, I can still hear them, led by a man from Texas, whose blue and howling notes once flew all over London and whose echoes can still be heard howling into the mist.
Chris Searle, Morning Star
