Reviewed in London Jazz News:
“Saxophonist Tom Ward plays with that same vitality as Colin Webster but a touch more of a warm jazz sense. His technical assuredness in using squeaks and harmonics within and around his tonal phrasing led neatly into some almost Rollins-like punchy lyricism. Ward moved over to flute a couple of times which varied the texture (keeping with a sixties vibe) but I think it’s a newer thing for him, with a shorter prosody of phrasing. On sax, he really talks. His pedalling sax with Williams’s bowed bass drew the performance into a powerful doomy sense of a happy end of the world.
