Review by Jim Galloway (former Artistic Director of The Downtown Toronto Jazz Festival) in April's Whole Note magazine.
"I enjoyed this CD — I have to admit that very often when I see a release with all original compositions I approach it with some trepidation, but there is no uncertainty with this recording. The compositions are inventive and the musicians all bring a cohesive and creative energy to the music. I hope that the leader/composer doesn’t mind if I say that some of the pieces bring to mind the work of Horace Silver; it is certainly meant as a compliment.
The musicians who lend their talents to the music of Mr. Boniwell are bassist Mark Cashion, drummer Mike McClelland, Kevin Turcotte on trumpet and Richard Underhill on alto sax.
This recording is yet another good example of the fine talents right here on our own doorstep."
"It is extremely rare that I comment like this, seriously.
You got the 'magic' from all the players.
You can tell they are actually having a great time playing your stuff and they sound like a band. Wow!
I was expecting just another boring local jazz album with a bunch of brainy notes with no magic, but what a pleasant surprise.
Bravo, I love it!" - Pierre Mongeon
"I love it. Been playing it all day. Seriously." - Tracey Gregoris
