'I have seen James Woodrow provide Frisellesque ambience for a Gavin Bryars string quartet, I have seen him lay small venues waste with blistering blues playing and he is equally adept at every single area of contemporary guitar playing. Truly a monstrous musician.'

Mark Ramsden, Musician Magazine

(Re Candytime)

“They play clever originals and quirky interpretations of unlikely material by Miles, Monk and Coltrane. Creative stuff that’s rooted in the great modern jazz tradition but venturing into post-bop, fusion and other territories. A sure footed and accomplished band with superb mutual dynamics, passion, magnetic soundscapes, skilled soloing and tight ensembles”
