“He is more than simply a trumpeter blowing a wonderfully powerful horn, but a socially conscious artist making a somewhat angular statement. All of the above is painted on an exquisite musical canvas… You would be hard-pressed to find music so vibrant and viscerally energetic than the eight pieces on Clave Sin Embargo.”

Raul de Goma, Latin Jazz Network (Canada)

"I liked trumpeter Loz Speyer‘s approach. He went outside, managed to get away from all the frantic business card-swapping - and took refuge in playing some beautiful-toned crystal-clear bebop lines."

- Sebastian Scotney, London Jazz News [Jazzahead report 2019]

Time Zone

“An ensemble led by a trumpeter/composer who has absorbed the essence of Cuban music and distilled it quite cunningly into an improvisatory context, with no compromise to either culture… Gritty, graceful sounds with a dark-light intensity.” - Kevin Legendre, Echoes

“A fresh perspective on that [Cuban] heritage by way of his London-based ensemble’s taste for raw punky downtown improv via New York, all the way through to free-jazz elements. But the music’s convivial dance sensibility sourced from son, batá and salsa is always apparent... Cohesive and engaging.”

Selwyn Harris, Jazzwise

"The integrity they bring to the emerging free jazz push-pull structure of ’Space Music’ pilots the musicians further towards destinations unknown." - Philip Clark, Jazzwise ****

"Superb outing that effectively highlights the leader's jarring and perceptively constructed compositions."

Glen Astarita, All About Jazz ****
