"Think of the sound of JD Allen on "I Am I Am" played through the filter of an English sense of melancholia" DownBeat USA

"Saxophonist Duncan Eagles holds the stage with his attractively dry tone, sharpness and the urgent ferocity of his tenor improvising" John Fordham, The Guardian

"Eagles's tone on his various horns achieves an impressive blend of colours and dynamics. His compositions and arrangements, embracing sinuous, sinewy elegance, spiky funk and languid ballads, repay close attention." BBC Music Magazine

"He’s a master in fine distinctions, who moves effortlessly between traditional and modern styles of playing" Klaus Gholke (booker at Jazz Im Braunschweig, Germany)

"the undoubted talent of Eagles, one of the new breed of musical creatives contributing to the burgeoning British jazz scene." Jazz Views
