"You were brilliant and very much appreciated by the audiences here in Grimsby, who especially appreciated how talented your orchestra were." - Lynne Conlon (Arts Development Officer) Grimsby International Jazz Festival.

"Paul, who leads this superb big band is a musician first and a drummer second, though that may not be doing justice to the fact that he is one of UK's top drummers."-Fred Shawcross, Jazz Correspondant, Lancashire Evening Telegraph.

"It was an honour to sing with this great band" - Clare Teal.

"The NJO certainly know their stuff, from Stan Kenton and Count Basie to lilting rhythms of jazz funk, they perform all with the ease of consummate professionals" - Gillian Gray, Lancashire Evening Telegraph.

"The 8 man brass team roared through the piece with an attack rarely heard in British Bands..." - Stan Woolley, The Stage.
