There's a buzz about Blazing Flame Quintet. German writer, Rigobert Dittman described vocalist/poet Steve Day's music as having "astonishing imagination and an alchemical flame..." The UK's top jazz magazine, Jazzwise, has referred to Peter Evan's violin performance being on "startling form". Mark Langford (tenor sax, bass clarinet), has a reputation as a phenomenal musician with 'underground improv' status. The bass/drums team of Julian Dale and Anton Henley fuse orchestral composition and the blues. Jazz author Marcus O'Dair likened Steve Day to a cross between Tom Waits and Vic Reeves before stating: "....if that sounds absurd, it isn't."
