Review:
"John Duffy's music offers just the ticket for classical music fans looking for a vibrant, engaging personality working with traditional tonal harmony and real tunes. ...the Saxophone Concerto is magnificent, one of the best in its genre. ... You'll be well entertained, that's for sure." (ClassicsToday.com)

"My immediate impression of Duffy and his music is favorable to an extraordinary degree: It is tonal but not treacly, rhythmically interesting without getting into a Minimalist or rock rut; challenging for both musicians and listeners, but far from unapproachable. In short, it's good music with that rarest of combinations, quality and entertainment. ...If you are open to new and interesting experiences that will reward your listening time in addition to making you feel good, this CD is a must have." (Fanfare)
