“Toronto saxophonist Mike Murley is a musician who flourishes in many settings – maybe even and setting.
Look back on the list of almost a dozen discs that he’s made under his own name and you’ll see duo, trio, quartet, quintet and septet outings – a spread of albums ranging from listens that are intimate and conversational to others that are lushly orchestrated and exuberant.
Regardless of who Murley, 52, involves the stylistic leaning of the music they play, the common denominator is high-quality, highly pleasurable listening. And his latest album, Looking Back, is among the best in his catalogue.”
Peter Hum – Ottawa Citizen
- “something of substance is happening with our Canadian neighbors…Murley and company are nothing less than amazing!”
