“Ray Blue has a majestic presence…when playing, his sense of purpose is obvious. It’s one thing to be a good composer, it’s another to be a great performer. Ray Blue’s got the whole package.”

– Jean Szlamowicz, Jazz Hot, Down Beat

“There is nothing quite like the comforting warmth of the tenor saxophone front and center… Ray Blue’s fluid, lyrical style is technically solid… The exquisite, evocative melodies are delivered with convincing feeling and emotion.

– Joe Ross, Roots Music Report

“He has a big sound and the improvisatory presence, unfurling broad-shouldered solos… a vigorous player who knows how to hold a crowd.”

– Peter Vacher, London Jazz Review
