"The disc offers much of interest for inquiring listeners and players alike. Not that the latter will find it easy to match the technical finesse and interpretative insight of the pianists featured here."
Richard Whitehouse, Gramophone, February 2018

"Philippa Harrison brings the requisite vibe and swing to the Four Jazz Portraits, capturing the style of each jazz great to whom they are dedicated. This is wonderfully rewarding, varied and enjoyable disc, proof that contemporary piano music can be tuneful, attractive and entirely accessible."
Frances Wilson, The Cross-Eyed Pianist, January 2018

"The Four Jazz Portraits are great fun, affording Philippa Harrison ample scope to display her mastery of boogie-woogie, and much else besides. This largely reflective album is gentle, wistful and jolly by turns. Terrifically quiet sound, too."
Guy Rickards, Musical Opinion, March 2018

"Philippa Harrison (no relation) performs the balance: the twilit Jazz Portraits, the solo version of the short Souls of Flowers and the fragile Northern Lights. Finally, Luna...for Nicola, a poignant tribute to Harrison's teacher Nicola LeFanu. An important disc".
International Piano Magazine, February 2018

"Four Jazz Portraits" is a set of miniatures for piano, which were inspired by the individual pianist style of Fats Waller, Bill Evans, Theolonius Monk and Albert Ammons, they are totally inspired and they capture the feel and style of each. To be honest, I just sat back and enjoyed this group of pieces, performed here by Philippa Harrison, for a personal indulgence."
Peter Byrom Smith; Sounds Magazine, January 2018.
