MONTREAL INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL


The stunning material he played to an awe-struck crowd ranged freely from Bach to boogie, with flat-out jazz, romance and the hypnotic music of the East filling in the spaces in between. He kept the audience in mute wonder with the delicate beauty of his melodies, superhuman left hand patterns, and a right that moved with the delicacy of a butterfly in flight. Montreal Gazette


TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL


The pianist Patrick Godfrey closed the night with a short reprise of themes from his recording Bells Of Earth. It is a sparkling work, and Godfrey once again managed to bring it to life with all its dazzle. His piano technique has remarkable clarity and his rhythmic sense is hard and sure. His shifting themes created a striking musical effect-something akin to a crystal winding and unwinding in bright sunlight, sending off flashes and colours and wonderful patterns in all directions with splendid unpredicability. Toronto Globe and Mail


His pianistics are impressive in their clarity of execution, his attitude is generally celebratory and the range of his investigations is both boundless and discreet. There should always be room for musicians with Godfreys sense of personal direction. The artist as advance scout, as it were. Toronto Globe and Mail
