‘[A] free-flowing, idiom-mingling debut…bridges the free-flowing yet methodical spontaneity of Lee Konitz, and the staccato, more mathematical methods of Steve Coleman and the M-base tradition. It's a smart, sophisticated debut from a UK newcomer with prospects.’ John Fordham, The Guardian
“...rhythmic subtlety, thoughtfulness and sensitivity to texture that reveals true musical maturity.” Julian Joseph, Jazz Line-up, BBC Radio3
‘A great example of an emerging talent stretching his wings.' John Norbury-Lyons, JazzUK
‘Indeed, Andrews is a strong altoist who clearly ignites confidence in his equally ambitious ensemble, the effect frequently cinematic in its boldness.’
Adrian Pallant, AP Reviews
'Jazz that keeps you listening.' Stephen Graham, Marlbank
'A future jazz great.' Lorelei Reddin, Daily Echo
'Deserves committed listening time.' Ian, Maund, Sandy Brown Jazz Magazine
