Peter Bacon (of London Jazz News) – “When I spot trumpeter Sean Gibbs in a band my spirits lift; I know there will be spot on ensemble playing and expertly-turned, beautifully toned solos” Herald Scotland (from a review of a concert by the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra) – “One of the evening’s star performers… bold, mischievous improvising that mightn’t have been out of place in the Ellington orchestra” Tony Dudley-Evans (artistic adviser to Jazzlines and programme adviser to Cheltenham Jazz Festival) – “Beautiful tone and inventive soloing”
