"(8/10) Jazz scene standout...the sound is a startling delight thanks to Tender's ability to marshal his crew to his step." - DJ Mag

"This is 100 per cent live-instrumental jazz, but it's also unmistakably London club music, with its heart in Dingwalls, Plastic People (RIP) and anywhere else people really dance to sophisticated's music for a proper party." - Mixmag

"In 2018, Cawthorne is one of the musicians blowing new life into the London jazz scene...Cawthorne's take on jazz is a hybrid, involving hefty infusions of hip hop and hip hop-derived styles, and like Kamaal Williams, he is at the beat-centric end of the new-jazz spectrum." - **** All About Jazz

"Standouts are many: the propulsive fusion of Maria. SV Disco, an ode to Dilla's group Slum Village, with its slinky clubfloor vibes and ferocious solo flute wig-out. Compelling stuff." - **** Evening Standard
