‘Energetic and at times downright cheeky … as accessible as it is intellectual and as felt as it is thought’ Andy Robson, Jazzwise, 2009

‘Unequivocal beauty and genre-busting writing … transcending the contemporary classical realm … progressive, but in a completely different sense … Bruford is the ideal choice for Riley.‘ John Kelman, All About Jazz, 2009

‘Restless, intricate rhythms … absorbing and gently hypnotic. The avant garde shows its happy face.’ John Bungey, The Times, 2009

‘Takes the sound-world, gestures and techniques from classical, rock and jazz, and makes no apologies for inhabiting the cracks between all three.’ 991 sleevenotes, 2009

‘Can and does groove like hell … at all times Skin and Wire operates on a high level of musical interest … one of the years most important fusion hybrid offerings.’ Gabblegate Music Review, 2009
