Reviews of the LJO...
"This album is at its best when the London Jazz Orchestra unpick the majesty of Saberton’s written music. It was written for these players, and theirs is the sound which Saberton held in his mind."....
...on the LJO's Gil Evans centenary performance of Miles Ahead: "...This concert will affect how I listen to orchestral music for the rest of my life."
