Album Notes
“…this is a band that sounds like a band-balanced, loose and emotionally in tune.”
Mark Miller (Globe and Mail)

“…not only an excellent and original trumpet player, but also a composer of note…”
Len Dobbin (Montreal Mirror)

“Sullivan is a fine trumpeter whose thoughtful, melodic approach to improvising reveals that he posesses considerable technique, as well as that more elusive gift – a clear idea of how to construct a solo”
David Cuner (Cadence Magazine)

“…manages to combine combine bursts of carefully orchestrated big band sound with free improvisation….Sullivan’s playing matches his compositions. It’s full of energy and melodic.”
Jeffrey Stoub (

“…a big, soft-edged tone and a driving attack, at times reminiscent of Woody Shaw…a devil-may-care quality to his solos…”
Paul Wells (Montreal Gazette)

“…sound was dark and smoky…a flugelhorn solo that ranged from the dusky bottom range to a burnished upper register…echoes of Kenny Wheeler, but Sullivan is very much his own man”
James Hale (Ottawa Citizen)
