'This was high-powered jazz, not by dint of frenetic pace, volume or assertiveness but by the beauty and coherence of the quartet sound that was at once polished but fresh and lively. That’s a difficult poise to strike, even for musicians as able as these, yet for all that they were fully engaged, each seemed entirely in his element.'
Whitman Reviews @ Wakefield Jazz
'Added to the warmth of his sound and excellent command of the instrument, Levy is an impressive package deserving wider international recognition. Phil Robson is already gaining wider international recognition, as witnessed by the admiring comments on his playing from Peter Bernstein and Wayne Krantz to be found on his website. His great fluidity and fleet inventiveness were, as ever, balm for the ears.'London Jazz News

The multi-award-winning vocalist Christine Tobin sings with two of the U.K.’s leading jazz musicians; pianist Liam Noble & guitarist Phil Robson who are both long-term musical collaborators. The repertoire of ‘Outside The Box’ will include songs from Christine’s highly acclaimed albums alongside a selection of new originals from all three performers and more.
Having been an integral part of both the New York City and London scenes for many years, Christine is now based in the West of Ireland. Her unique, rich sound was described by The Guardian as ‘Tobin’s 24 carat voice’. Her expressive range acknowledges finely acquired jazz, folk and twentieth century classical influences.She can be junkyard blues philosopher, snappy beat seductress, a conduit for exquisite zen-like harmonies, or reflective Americana. MOJO Music Magazine said of her 'Christine Tobin really transcends glib genre-fiction…..everything is shot through with an unmistakable refinement, free-spirited earthiness and giddy romanticism, this singer-songwriter is in a field of one'.

Returning Weather is the latest work from Dublin born multi-award-winning vocalist and songwriter Christine Tobin. Celebrated for her versatility and nonconformist musical spirit, Returning Weather imaginatively weaves song, spoken word, visual effects and a stellar group of musicians from diverse disciplines together, creating a multi-dimensional sound-world which blends influences from folk, 20th-century art song and jazz. It charts a journey which is part homecoming, part memoir, inspired by Christine’s return to Ireland after many years abroad and explores themes of finding home, dwelling and landscape, reconnecting with a cultural background, reshaping a sense of identity and belonging. The songs are set in the countryside around Frenchpark, Boyle and Ballaghadereen. There are many songs of leaving and farewell, this is the music of homecoming and return. She was commissioned to write this evocative new song cycle by The Dock Arts Centre, with an Arts Council, Music Commissions Award.
