"Sometimes it’s a real blessing, a gift, to encounter music that isn’t dutifully trying to Prove Something, insisting that we admire its Authenticity. Guitarist Leo Forde has got the wonderful notion into his head and fingers that music, candid and gentle, ought to be enough for anyone" - Jazz Lives
