All these kiddy-crooners around today think they’ve got the Sinatra touch but, believe me, they’re not fit to shine (Paul Ryan's) patent-leather shoes” (Jack Massarik, Jazz Critic, London Evening Standard)
Paul Ryan is a song stylist in the great tradition of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Nat “King” Cole who sings “with a knowledge and understanding of the nuances and wit of the great lyricists…each (song) a narrative… personal and poignant, opening up a thousand memories.” Matthew Wright (Jazzwise)
