”a highly impressive statement from the versatile young pianist John Turville... this well balanced programme covers a number of styles and bases and the interplay between the three principal musicians is consistently interesting. Hill’s huge tone and Reynolds’ colourful drumming complement the leader well, his playing a good balance between lyricism and muscularity [...] This album deserves to establish Turville as a major new figure on the British jazz scene.” (Ian Mann, thejazzmann.com, 4 stars).

“Midas is high-end piano trio jazz, beautifully recorded [...] resonating with the work of Keith Jarrett and John Taylor without denying the group's considerable individuality [...] who wheel and curve through the shape shifting music as one” (Chris May, All About Jazz)

”John Turville is a young conservatoire-trained British pianist with very broadly-based resources [...] his adventurousness with harmony and the always lyrical yet narratively swerving designs of his improvisations often recall UK piano giant John Taylor's playing” (John Fordham, The Guardian)

”John Turville’s fresh-sounding UK piano trio of bassist and drummer Chris Hill and Ben Reynolds deliver a fresh balance of current concerns and conventional wisdom ... whizzing from modern bustle to soulful blues” (Mike Hobart, Financial Times)

“I was struck by the musicality of the playing, the sensitivity and empathy in the ensemble and the lyricism and development... There isn't a moment when anything is overplayed [and] they play with a maturity well beyond their years” (Tim Whitehead, Loose Tubes)
