"The other new piece on the bill, Unfurl, by Patrick John Jones, was more arresting, with an acerbic clarinet seeping across a bed of strings like a dark stain" - Alfred Hickling, The Guardian (19/03/2014)

"Patrick John Jones’ spare, shimmering musical mirage" - Catherine Jones, Liverpool Echo (18/03/2014)
