“Paul Dunmall is a monster sax player” - Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes

“...a musician who can wail convincingly without abandoning his intellect” - All Music Guide

”Whether in a trio with Mujician's rhythm section or with the larger band of sympathetic fellow improvisers, Dunmall consistently produces powerful and passionate music” - BBC Music Magazine (June 1994)
