I really dig her; she’s so organic... She sounds very relaxed, but she’s got a real burn to her playing on the tenor saxophone.... my ears never get tired",
Ingrid Jensen' 'Artist Choice' Article Jazz Times"
“A flute and reeds player of nicely sinuous melodic invention.” -
"Freestone has clearly listened widely, but her musicality and broad experiences have stirred all that input into an imposingly original sound"-
“The versatile tenorist/flautist, her sound pure toned yet incisive in the upper register in the manner of US master Mark Turner.” -
The Evening Standard
“The excellent saxophonist Tori Freestone makes for a very impressive listen. Robust tenor work.”
“A pleasingly circumspect but powerful and cogent saxophonist.” -
Vortex Jazz Review
“Tori Freestone has a warm and open tone, her playing is melodic and innovative, exploring the full range of the saxophone.”
- All About Jazz
