Tuneful, sincere and exciting... and it swings. Tim Boniface's quartet play beautifully on
his compositions. Some solos will blow you away: Tim's impassioned tenor and alto; Phil
Merriman's piano - is there anything he can't do? - as well as the smart interlocking of the
rhythm section. The bonus track with Polly Gibbons is a jam session so exciting that you
never want it to end. ...Fine music. Brian Case
Beautifully played and conceived. The Eight Words is the work of a fine composer-
musician—who also happens to be ordained. And this is the uniqueness here. The work is
ambitious, thoughtful and accessible, yes
