Collaborative album with tenor saxophonist Tim Whitehead.

‘Some of the most beautiful music you will hear this year … lithe and buoyant …. has the hairs rising on the back of your neck.’
Peter Bacon, Birmingham Post 2003

"Here are wondrous ideas, perfectly executed and with exquisite sound."
Garry Booth, BBC Music Magazine 2003

"Intensely sad, celebratory, ruminative. Thoughtful and impressionistic contemporary music that rewards repeated listenings."
Andrew Vine, Yorkshire Post 2003

"A dark, cinematic, gorgeous thing filled with strange grooves."
Time Out 2003

"Jazz and classical music should go together more often if the new album 'Tides' is anything to go by. Intelligent, confident, accessible … a labour of love rather than a product. "
John L Walters, The Guardian 2003

"A very English, very appealing fusion."
John Bungey, The Times 2003

"Unusually colourful and seductive depths … created by Riley's restless sense of personal odyssey."
Selwyn Harris, Jazzwise Magazine 2003
