"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]

'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 ****
"A mix of mutated hard-bop and classic Afro-Cuban music that turns out to be a vigorous display of independent character... contemporary Latin-Jazz of considerable muscle." - John Fordham, the Guardian
“He is more than simply a trumpeter blowing a wonderfully powerful horn, but a socially conscious artist making a somewhat angular statement… You would be hard-pressed to find music so vibrant and viscerally energetic than the eight pieces on Clave Sin Embargo.” - Raul de Gama, Latin Jazz Network, Canada
