Press Reviews

Over the years both Jake Fryer and the band have received these reviews from critics:

"Fryer comes across as an equally fleet-fingered soloist who serves as a good foil to Shank."
Mike Shanley-Jazz Times

"Fryer is a stellar saxophonist and has earned a reputation as a player to be watched"
L.A. Jazz Scene

"Jake solos after Bud and it's clear right away that he belongs with musicians of this caliber, and that the bebop idiom is as much his as Bud's. Traces can be heard of Bud's influence, and that of Phil Woods too."
Reggie Marshall - U.S. jazz agent on reviewing Jake Fryer/Bud Shank Quintet album "In good company"

"The British Jake Fryer and the London BeBop Collective featuring Fryer on the alto sax, promises to be a treat for mainstream jazz buffs"
Sanil Sampat - The Times of India

"The lightning guitar and sax of Bollywood Bop reveal impressive technique"
John Bungey - The Times

"Your recordings sound good, I like your phrasing."
Charles McPherson
