The Album 

All Day and All of the Night

"…the album swings consistently…with this sharp, cogent collection, a dedicated follower of Ray Davies has made him a well-respected jazz composer too." The Times

"…a lot of affection, a lot of respect for those unforgettable melodies and a whole lotta damn fine playing…these well respected men have done Mr. Davies proud" Jazzwise

"…I thought it was very good and well played. Your album is easy to listen to and I like the sound with the tenor and soprano sax. The improvisation is so good. Well done!" Mick Avory
