Review of Jazz Moods in the Clarinet & Saxophone Society of Great Britain's Magazine
"I really enjoyed playing through these pieces, and even indulged in a bit of 'karaoke' with the excellent CD. This is a lovely collection of pieces which will appeal to all ages of saxophonist. If you or your pupils enjoyed Andy Hampton's Between a Rock and a Hard Place (grade 6 alto sax) then I think the ballads Tune for Joey, and Love is an Enigma will be particularly desirable. The Latin and jazz pieces are also very good. Parade of Dudes has a good piano groove which sets the piece up well. the piano parts are fairly accessible; you won't need to be a concert pianist to be able to play them and if you don't have access to a pianist or a piano then there's always the CD. There are two piano parts so that the sax part remains universal and the accompanist has the key changes. The differing styles will attract those players who would like to play something more contemporary, packaged in a very smart volume of well-written, sensibly articulated solos". Viv Halton (review in March 2015 CASS GB magazine).
