"A show that combined excellent musicianship and literate, intelligent song writing and arranging with good humour and a pleasingly unpretentious approach."
"A mix of intelligent original songs and innovative arrangements of tunes by both jazz and pop composers. It's the quality of the original songs that make this jazz vocal album stand out from the pack."
"An enjoyable, entertaining and highly informative event. The quality of the singing and playing was excellent throughout, as was the quality of the original songwriting."
"Ian Mann looks at singer & lyricist Zoe Gilby's 'vocalese' adaptations of tunes by the American trumpeter Tom Harrell. He also examines her EP of voice & double bass duets, recorded with Andy Champion"
"The standard of the singing and playing was exceptional throughout with two well balanced sets featuring the trio’s characteristic mix of jazz standards, well chosen covers & excellent original songs."
