Critical Acclaim for the Royal Bopsters Project:
  • “Extraordinary…The Royal Bopsters Project vividly makes the case for a revival of the art of vocalese. (4.5 stars/Best Albums of 2015) ”– Allen Morrison, Downbeat
  • "The presence of these monarchs of vocal jazz in no way intimidates the Bopsters, who swing and scat with energy, accuracy and melodic inventiveness."- Peter Jones, London Jazz News
  • “If this disc featured just the quartet, it would be sensational. The addition of the icons, showcased once each (with Murphy provided wider presence) and all in remarkably fine form, escalates it from valuable to priceless from piquant to landmark…”- Christopher Loudon, Jazz Times (A JazzTimes Best Album of 2015)
  • “A magnum opus of jazz and song, gathering and celebrating bop and vocalese withthe best (and last) of the definitive jazz singers … “ – Michael Bourne, Singers Unlimited, WBGO
