“..live improvised music from the fantastic Mark Langford on bass clarinet and tenor sax. Lovely combination of smooth and fiery tones, inspirational at the national jam ..”

Simon Leach, Bristol Contact Improv Dance coordinator


“Langford blows windlessly in the willows ….the tender tenor singing in its dark river bed remains dominant..” ..  “… with the careful, deliberate pace on the smokily murmuring bass clarinet and the sparkling tenor sax …. He builds on Telford’s white water rapids, foaming and spraying, as he fires around the tightest corners. But then he’s floating like a leaf on the water, whirling and drifting through the shadow zones”

Rigobert Dittman, Bad Alchemy Magazin - reviews of Angel Pavement and Exchange CDs


“Hear Deep End; to follow Langford’s lines dropping into the abyss through that long black stick is to touch the bottom of the ocean. The full depth” .. “Langford seems to dissolve himself into his reeds, waits for the moment and then elucidates; projecting the woody depth of song form without words.  So fine. So very fine…. He grinds music out of his reeds like each day matters, yesterday has gone and tomorrow will be dealt with when/if it arrives.  You hear the now, not the past and not even the future.”
