'Intelligent yet playful sextet… they're sure to win converts.' Clive Davis, The Sunday Times
'The band manages to bring in a deep scholarly understanding of New Orleans and Dixieland jazz without letting it undermine their enthusiasm for performing, and they manage to bring a contemporary London edge to the music while being true to its origins. They represent a fresh re-invention driven by joy.' Peter Bacon, The Jazz Breakfast
'Lively and life-affirming, Standing Pat is intelligent but without pretension. It's also a whole lot of fun, of which there is far too little on today's jazz scene.' Chris Mosey,
'Their music combines a love of traditional Dixieland jazz styles with the sophistication of modern musical ideas whilst retaining the essential joie de vivre of New Orleans music.' Ian Mann -
