Review

"No need for labels, no need indeed, what label could you apply anyway. This CD is soaked in jazz feeling, played by technically immaculate musicians interpreting fine tunes in which those composed by the band leader/vocalist himself need fear no challenge. Gordon's voice is soaked in soul, unique and his own. Altogether a thoughtful and delightful collection."

"FMR have discovered a gem in Webber. With a rich soulful voice and understated delivery he is a must for "dinner jazz" fans. As well as original compositions "no need for labels" features superb covers of "Nights in white satin", "What a difference a day makes" "The long and winding road" and Lionel Riche's "Hello"

"Heard this guy at a Mayfair wine bar, fronting an 8 piece soul band with a hi energy vocal performance that has to be heard to be believed. The album is a shock! Gordon has put together some fine, known (and not so well known) jazzers. Play "No need" and hear a singer who is world apart from the Mayfair wine bar performer. The album is a joy, and the vocal performance oozes subtle, experienced colourful blues. Why FMR (the record company) have categorised this superb soul and brilliant blues man as "jazz" heaven only knows?"

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your band's magnificent performance at the Savoy. It was a pleasure dealing with you in the lead up to the event as there was very little to worry about due to good communication and your professional approach. The feedback obtained from the guests, which were in excess of 350 was that last years annual Ball was without doubt the best ever! Our Society will be using you for this years Savoy event and I would gladly recommend your services. again, thank you for your lively performance and I very much look forward to the next opportunity to see you."

Review

"Gordon and Steve display a great knowledge of good song-writing, mining nuggets from the richest seams of rock and blues, arranging them for two acoustic guitars, and producing some absolute gems of interpretation. Soulful vocals and a penetrating guitar sound bring a new lease of life to carefully-chosen material from a variety of genres, as they eschew the obvious in favour of a truly original take on some classic tunes."

"Thank you for fantastic performance; you made our evening very special. Gordon's vocals were first class and his backing band soulful and entertaining at all times. We felt at ease the whole evening because everyone enjoyed the band so much. We had a diverse cross-section of guests but everyone found the band to their liking. The band were fun, entertaining, very accommodating, but most of all -SOULFUL. So many bands run through a set of tired old standards with all the verve of an office typing pool on a Friday afternoon - this band are different; they actually love what they are doing and the guests at our reception loved every minute."

Review

"Just to let you know that everybody really enjoyed the party, as you could probably see on the night. The venue and catering were excellent, but most of all, you and your band were fantastic. After the party, I received all the thank you calls; your band was the topic of much of all the conversations. Many could not believe just how good you were. For me, the whole night seemed to pass so quickly. You helped to make it something that will be difficult to beat. The Punch Bowl Restaurant rate it as their best so far, and were really impressed with your performance. You were the talk of the restaurant the next day. Thank you for a great night."

"The thrill of an up-tempo Latin-pop fusion brought the room alive, and the cool vivacious sounds of Latin Soul enticed you down the stairs. Accomplished duo Gordon and Dominic expertly weaved around some familiar songs in their own unique and relaxed style. -Thanks Gordon You made our night a great success, you are obviously the top act- and we will definitely be booking you for Derby Day (Woodcote Park)" Thanks again for great night, everybody is still raving about you. Onwards and upwards to our future Jazz Brunch."
