"Queen’s Troubadour- jazz fusion and soul imbued rock with lots of wigged out wiggly playing and a frontman with tood agogo and an edgy, exciting vocal…something of Weather Report in the playing or progressively soulful in the sense of Stevie Wonder circa Inner Visions etc…Wonderfully engaging.” - Bugbear
