”Not only a fine saxophonist with a distinctively rich tone, Lavers is also an accomplished composer...”Robert Shore, JazzWise review of 'Six'. June 2010.***

“...here is a talent deserving of wider recognition.” JazzMann review of 'Six' May 2010 ****

“It’s important for sax players to achieve a unique sound. Rob’s rich tone on tenor is perfectly complimented by the ethereal sweetness of his flute playing, and his soprano work is beautifully assured on this most stubborn of the saxes - his sound is very definitely his own ” Mark Norton, MCPS

“Lavers comes across as a strong performer on both tenor and soprano.” Kenny Mathieson,Jazzwise***

“This is a band with a great sense of ensemble and an individual sound” Nick Jones, Leicester Mercury

“A lovely rich mix of contrasting instruments, tempos and styles” Michael Kearley, Jnoir review

“The Rob Lavers Quartet were a revelation, conjuring up a late 1960s Joe Henderson set- they show great promise.” Manchester jazz festival, Tim Stenhouse, JazzWise
