“Blue Dream” named jazz album of the month by Echoes Magazine.
Echoes also placed Blue Dream at the top its UK Jazz Chart, too. Kevin Le Gendre writes:
“It’s too early to tell whether Blue Dream is something of a career-defining moment for Saft, but it will be worth dialing back on this work in a couple of years such is the depth of feeling reached by a band that is right at the top of its game.”
Italian Music publication Kathodik gives “Blue Dream” 9/10 stars
“Al di sopra delle mode.”
