“On ballads, (Paul) could wring a tear from a walnut and when playing uptempo he navigates the terrain with ease. His compositions are engaging.” – John Fenton

“There is something different about tenor players who have studied under Garzone and Paul fits that bill. His rapid fire lines and fluidity never obscure the musical ideas that flow from his horn.” – John Fenton

“This is a wonderful example of the creative musical energy of Australian musicians and especially the younger generations who, while respecting the tradition of the older jazz players, are pushing into the future.” – Dr Tony Gould

“Hard fast and exciting playing…with great ideas….that’s what I like about Paul Van Ross and his music…check him out.” – George Garzone

“As a composer, Van Ross has a strong musical palette that’s rooted in traditional swing and progressive cool, where a track such as the poetic ballad Uncle DJ, is as tight-knit as chainmail with the elasicity of Lycra, while there’s a touch of the Crusaders and early period George Benson in the Sam Rivers-inspired Off With The Fairies.” – Mike Alexander
