BISTRO AWARDS NYC
'Song after song attests to (his) ability to evoke the style and substance of classic cabaret songs of the past while remaining a total original. There are echoes of Coward and Porter and Grand and Harnick and Sondheim in terms of verbal dexterity and infectious accompaniment, but the show is like finding a treasure trove of new special material, ready to be immortalized'
SUZY KLEIN - BBC RADIO 3 ESSENTIAL CLASSICS
'Haunting...An artist I just cannot stop listening to'
'Solo piano is best when its telling a story, and Ty's pieces are redolent of a place and time, almost filmic in the way they evolve, and full of beautiful, wistful longing. You'll see pictures as you listen, and that's a rare gift in music today'
'Jeffries’ skills on the piano are clear – as are his skills as a songwriter and musical performer...an absolute delight.’
IAN ROSENBLATT OBE (ROSENBLATT RECITALS)
'Debussy-esque...Always evocative, each track tells a story, beautifully expressed without words .Ty has created a sumptuous musical world that both sparks the imagination and settles the mind'
YEHUDA SHAPIRO (THE STAGE/THE FT)
'Each compact piece on his album Dusk in the Luxembourg Gardens references and integrates a diversity of influences while springing some gentle – but sophisticated – surprises, whether melodic, harmonic or rhythmic. If an air of nostalgia hangs over the album, it is captivating for today’s listener.'
'Solo piano soundscapes to die for...'
