”Easily among the top mainstream trombonists in Jazz today ... full- bodied, post-bop trombone sound and considerable compositional skills .... finely executed heartfelt jazz.” - Joel Roberts - New York City Jazz Record

”In Clifton's hands, you hear the trombone in a modern guise. Clifton plays with plenty of hard-bop power, but he also delivers the punch with high-register sensitivity, exhibits enormous tenderness, and his cinematic sense of suspense holds the ear. What I love most about Clifton's playing here is his tone.” -Marc Myers - JazzWax.com
