Here's a review of Boomerang by Jim Galloway (former Artistic Director of The Downtown Toronto jazz Festival) in April's Whole Note.


"I enjoyed this CD—I have to admit that very often when I see a release with all original compositions I approach it with some trepidation, but there is no uncertainty with this recording. The compositions are inventive and the musicians all bring a cohesive and creative energy to the music. I hope that the leader/composer doesn’t mind if I say that some of the pieces bring to mind the work of Horace Silver; it is certainly meant as a compliment.


The musicians who lend their talents to the music of Mr. Bonniwell are bassist Mark Cashion, drummer Mike McClelland, Kevin Turcotte on trumpet and Richard Underhill on alto sax.


This recording is yet another good example of the fine talents right here on our own doorstep."

           StopStart Review

The quirky, moody dispositions of the Andrew Boniwell Quartet mark StopStart. The title track inspired by Bill Frisell and Carla Bley had odd lines that sniggle and snake their way out of the soprano saxophone, the passage dark and sombre, backlit by piano which retains the ambience though the touch is not as heavy. The shifting patterns of “Don't Stop There” make for some unexpected but welcome moves. The final piece “King's Tragedy” is sprightly and has a zest the other compositions do not. And while words and the music may make strange bedfellows, the foursome revel in free terrain letting the music flow out of their veins, inventing the next move and getting it all together.
