”Richard Rozze is an artist who has successfully forged a unique approach to his playing and compositions. He glides effortlessly through multi-genre worlds, his solos flawlessly committed to his surroundings. On this debut album, the listener will be enthralled by Rozze’s ability to fuse elements of rock, jazz, folk & Americana. You will stop asking yourself “what style of music am I listening to?” and realise the question is moot, it’s just great music!” – Paul Booth – saxophonist with the Steve Winwood Band
