Here’s what some of the UK’s best known musicians have said about the band:
“They sound great, they play great, and damn it they look great too. [SOBN] deftly deliver intrigue and soulful lines in remarkably tidy unison and then dazzle with their virtuosic improvisations, all the while driven by a top flight rhythm section. Don’t miss any opportunity to see and indeed hear The Sound of BlueNote” – Nigel Price

This may be a celebration of a golden musical age but in a modern and very relevant context.” – Alan Barnes
