What The Press Has To Say About Tenormore:
The range of expression that Robinson is capable of eliciting from a single horn… is astounding. Scott Robinson may take instrumental variegation to a level unsurpassed in this music, but that shouldn’t diminish his position as a tenor saxophonist of note. In that most crowded of fields, he still stands out. (4 ½ stars) -Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz

Introducing Scott in a festival a few years ago, I mentioned that his tenor playing had reached a level where he was overshadowing better-known players who were winning polls. Since then, his name comes up more and more frequently in the tenor sax division… -Doug Ramsey of Rifftides (liner notes)

Impassioned playing from Robinson, always in control and yet stretching his sound and tone towards the edge of what’s possible. -Mark McKergow, LondonJazz News

Robinson kicks it all off in daring fashion… he swings effortlessly and delivers a singing quality… while also incorporating some unconventional twists… A winning set (4 stars) -Bill Milkowski, DownBeat

A horn that old has a patina. So does Robinson’s sound... Robinson may tailor each note in a line, varying its thickness, tone, vibrato or volume. He knows the tenor’s emotional range too, wounded cry to soothing consolation, even in a single phrase. A student of its overtones, he may slide into a split-tone passage reminiscent of Tibetan throat singing. Or he’ll leap into the altissimo register… to play a single grace note, or whole high-wire passages (4 ½ stars) -Kevin Whitehead, The Audio Beat
