Joshua Jaswon & Nick Costly-White Duo Recital Review

Lovely to receive these kind words from the University of Oxford about mine and guitar maestro Nick Costley-White’s duo recital there earlier this year:

‘…then recital was a huge success from our point of view, as you could tell, I hope, from the enthusiastic response of the audience.

‘…it was a privilege to hear you both play, and at such a standard of consummate excellence, but also to discover jazz sounds and compositions probably none of us had heard before…’

‘…I hadn’t fully realised your stature as a composer, to add to that as a sax player…what a special and rare joy it was, too, to hear a full recital on the soprano saxophone….’
