Some great testimonials over the years

“I will say without equivocation that this latest assembly of Frank Griffith’s work has delighted me”.

Sir John Dankworth

 “In a set of short solo explorations, poetic tenorist, Frank Griffith responds to the invitation with particular zest”

John Fordham- The Guardian

 “Simply listening to the way Griffith lays out the theme of a standard such as Where or When is a pleasure in itself and his own tenor saxophone playing is a model of compact energy”..

Dave Gelly- The Observer

 “Frank Griffith’s tenor playing shines throughout the album, showing beautiful control of the instrument, unhurried phrasing and continuous storytelling. The clarinet features lovely phrasing and smooth sound”.

Richard Ingham- Clarinet and Saxophone Journal

“Griffith has loosely modelled his band on the sonorous harmonies and interlocking riffs of the 1950s, with Gil Evans particularly favoured. It is a group sound in which riffs, textures and voicings take precedence over melody, and solos are tailored to the needs of the ensemble”

Mike Hobart- The Financial Times

“Tenorman/clarinetist Frank Griffith deploys his nine-piece with exemplary skill, taking advantage both of the dynamics and textural range that comes with the numbers, and of the opportunity to showcase soloists of the high calibre- this is a powerful but flexible unit”.

Chris Parker

“The Frank Griffith Nonet’s The Coventry Suite is an immaculately crafted album which is reflected in the blend of youth and experience in this highly talented and disciplined band which contains some of Britain’s finest soloists”.

Ian Mann

“Griffith has become a valued part of the UK scene since relocating from his native USA, and this latest CD is his best yet. His nine-piece band is a beauty, and handles Griffith’s intelligent arrangements with great aplomb”

Andrew Vine- The Yorkshire Post
