JazzTimes - p.84
"Allen is in great form, whether swinging ebulliently or caressing a melody, and the virtuosic Allred is consistently impressive."

Product Description:

Audio Mixer: Tom Swift.
Liner Note Author: Dick Sudhalter.
Recording information: Twinz Recording Studio, River Edge, NJ (11/2006).
A superior swing-based tenor saxophonist influenced by Stan Getz and Scott Hamilton, Harry Allen has made an increasingly strong reputation during numerous recordings and countless live appearances. But even with his growing discography, Hits by Brits may very well be Allen's finest all-round recording, at least to date. He absolutely burns on the uptempo pieces ("Cherokee," "Roses of Picardy," "Just in Time," and "Limehouse Blues"), his tone sounds a bit more personal than earlier (moving a little away from Getz) and he was very clearly inspired during the project. Trombonist John Allred is an exuberant asset whenever he appears, guitarist Joe Cohn has yet to take a tasteless or unworthy solo, and the team of bassist Joel Forbes and drummer Chuck Riggs keep the music swinging and moving. The ten songs were all written by Englishmen or English-born songwriters. More importantly, all are worth hearing again in this setting. Highly recommended. ~ Scott Yanow
