Thirdly,the Evening Standard, in a glowing 4 star review, states, “Britain’s top exponent [of the flute] is Gareth Lockrane, whose hip ideas and easy fluency recall the great Tubby Hayes… Lockrane’s stylish originals include the funky title track and the gentler One for Bheki, dedicated to a departed friend, South African pianist-composer Bheki Mseleku.”
