“Olding’s playing and writing is solid on every tune … While he is firmly rooted in the modern jazz guitar sound, especially with his voicings, tone, and harmonic choices, there is also a strong bop sensibility during his solos. Whether or not this comes out through a study of the tradition, or in the second-hand absorption of modern players like Scofield and Rosenwinkel, it adds a second layer of diversity to every solo and melody line he plays. Aside from contributing as a highly creative soloist, Olding also possesses a chord vocabulary and sense of harmony that would leave many seasoned players in his wake.” Matthew Warnock, All About Jazz US
