THE GUARDIAN – ORIOLE LIVE @ THE VORTEX, LONDON – “long through-composed passages, with ace counterpoint, while maintaining the impetus of a jazz performance”
Birmingham Post – Oriole and Ingrid Laubrock live @ The Glee Club – “An excellent and long (exceptionally good value!) evening of some of the freshest sounds in jazz.”
All About Jazz – Cheltenham Jazz Festival – “Jonny Phillips’ Oriole were absolutely exquisite, possibly my favourite performance of the whole festival”
The Vortex Website – Cheltenham Jazz Festival – Oriole, starting Sunday’s proceedings with another Jerwood Rising Stars gig, turned in one of the festival’s standout performances. Their music (written by leader/guitarist Jonny Phillips) is simply beautiful.
