"You'll see that they can let their hair down ... From gypsy swing to hustling, Chick Corea-ish improv, a re-working of Horace Silver's Song For My Father and serene excursions into the baroque, the playlist always keeps you guessing. And the telepathy is always tuneful."

- The Sunday Times, December 2012

"Release The Penguins is performed with impeccable musicianship ... a Gypsy jazz delight ... played with masterly flamenco and classical guitar technique. The musicianship of the players provides some glorious sounds and textures. There is certainly some beautiful and emotional music on this album This is different and interesting. And did I mention the impeccable musicianship?"

- fRoots Magazine, November 2012

"Flamenco, jazz and gypsy-swing mingle together in the world of the TG Collective ... they play together with pinpoint precision ... scorching improvisations ... a rewarding listen all round."

- Songlines Magazine, July 2012

"A very tasty gumbo indeed ... TGC's ever-widening crazy quilt of influences ... delightful ... swinging ... unerringly lyrical."

- Jazzwise Magazine, June 2012

"Sparkling playing/arrangements and exquisite soloing are permanent features ... Release The Penguins is unique, adventurous and a true find."
