"The pianist can effortlessly sustain a graceful Bill Evans-like lyrical swing, but also massages the ideas of the others. His contemporary references give him a broad sweep, and he has much to do with this set's freedom from bop-standard rigidities...The pianist wraps a light tracery around Speake against ringing cymbal and thumping keynotes on Jitterbug Waltz, and then plays a pungent solo…"

John Fordham,The Guardian, Friday, June 27th 2008


‘Green’s piano provided some real interaction with the vocals, sometimes prodding, sometimes holding back, and often inserting deft little phrases that decorated the lyrics with taste and sensitivity.’

Alyn Shipton, The Times


“That Green possesses such wide ranging interests will surprise no-one who has caught him with the various band leaders to whose groups he contributes his sparkling but cogent piano work”

Chris Parker,Vortex


“…the trio tracks show off Green’s virtuosity. His work can be both intricate and assertive, and is constantly inventive. A CD which generously repays repeated listening”

Pete Martin, Jazz UK


“…the one who really shone was pianist Barry Green. Watching his imagination unfurl, was an engaging experience and turned out to be the keenest musical pleasure of the evening”

Ivan Hewett, Daily Telgraph
