"With its mix of jazz styles, highly melodic writing and classy, confident playing this a thoroughly assured début from The Weave. "
"Great tunes, a high standard of musicianship all round and some exceptional solos, all of this enlivened by a very healthy dollop of Liverpudlian wit and wisdom. The buzz continues to grow. "
"The Weave's blend of superb musicianship and slightly surreal Liverpudlian humour proved to be a winner all round."
"The Weaveâ€™s unique blend of accessible compositions, superb playing and Liverpudlian wit and wisdom sent the crowd home happy."
