Reviews for 'Dream with Me' by Nicola Pennill:
"...Impressive launch for her CD label...the dream concept provides a coherence for a wide variety of material...whichever saxophone Nicola is playing she does so with fine control and unobtrusive vibrato...a great deal for saxophonists and others to reflect on and enjoy in this accessible and imaginative album."Clarinet and Saxophone Magazine, Winter 2009
"Fabulous! ...such a beautiful selection of pieces, and the playing is even more beautiful." Amy Dickson, saxophonist and international recording artist
