"Some bands exude cool and Blind Monk Trio have their unique musical style down to a T. We can't get enough of this fantastic trio. Join the Brotherhood for a Live Music Treat!" - Matt & Phreds Jazz Club, Manchester
"Blind Monk Trio aren't exactly your average jazz band. Fronted by a bearded, tattooed saxophonist the band played a set that kept the crowd interested and the improvisations were really impressive. A brilliant show of musical ability by the trio." - www.mangoneblog.com
“Blind Monk Trio is a great jazz trio. At first, I was a little dubious as to how much I would enjoy the set; I guess I had the typical jazz trio stereotype in mind. But I am glad to say that through a great use of space and dynamics they managed to make their naturally limited timbre (3 instruments) sound interesting and such great tone from a tenor sax!" - Lancaster Jazz Festival
"Hugo Harrison (bass) and Johnny Hunter (drums) provide intelligent and highly musical support at all times, nevertheless, it's Whittaker's sax playing that shoulders most of the workload and his big, bold tone and flowing lines prove more than capable of holding the attention. With quirky and humourous original tunes, this was the perfect gig." - London Jazz News
"Blind Monk Trio are the first to take the stage, and their offering is unique - the arrangements are such that you get the impression that these musicians have tapped into another level of communication, pre-empting each other's next steps and wordlessly resolving each time." - Bido Lito music magazine
"Improvised melodic twists, dissonant harmonies, hesitations, abrupt silences and percussive attack are inventively captured by this sax, bass, drums trio. Loads of rhythmic inventiveness, outstanding musicianship" - Lancaster Jazz Festival
"Great playing at the Caledonia Liverpool last night chaps. The trio format works incredibly well, leaving space for virtuosity without the feeling that all the players are just in a queue! Loved it, sorry we had to go before the end."
"You guys are seriously good. Last night's performance at the Caledonia Liverpool was amazing. A great demonstration of the art of the trio."
