4 STAR review from John Fordham at the Guardian for Trish Clowes/Guy Barker/Norma Winstone EFG London Jazz Festival concert with BBC Concert Orchestra – “a symphonic treat”


4 STARS from John Fordham at the Guardian for Pocket Compass – “Clowes’ intuitive one-twos with pianist Gwilym Simcock so closely echo Shorter and the Herbie Hancock of old that it’s almost uncanny”

4 STARS from Barry Witherden at BBC Music Magazine – “melding of the unexpected and the inexorable”

4 STARS from Matthew Wright at the Arts Desk – “Clowes’ third album condenses and refines her exquisite control of instrumental colour”

4 STARS from Selwyn Harris at Jazzwise – “this is very stylish and heartfelt new music from a rising young sax star.”

4 STARS/RECOMMENDED from Stephen Graham at marlbank – “beyond the obvious virtuosity the record contains some of the most absorbing original music in the jazz-classical idiom released this year… A fine achievement, one to add to any self-respecting list of jazz albums of the year.”

…and listed #12 in marlbank’s Jazz Albums of the Year

Jazz Views/Nick Lea – “undoubtedly a strong contender for Album of the Year”
