Between the Lines confirmed their promise and firmly launch the Dave Stapleton Quintet as one of the finest outfits on the UK Jazz scene. Full of robust melodies, hard hitting grooves and fiery playing, Between the Lines is a hugely dynamic, powerful, and engaging work packed with a warmth and a depth that is utterly compelling.

‘Stapleton has developed his own music full of melody, atmosphere and tough grooves. Ben Waghorn and Jonny Bruce shine on the front line, but the real achievement is one of compositional and ensemble rigour’. – MOJO


'Articulate, sensitive and thoughtfully detailed, this is a smart application of core jazz values'

BBC Music Online

'Between the Lines is full of subtle surprises. The sound-world, tinged with Fender-Rhodes silveriness, is distinctive. And the solo playing is very classy indeed'
