“One of the most distinctive acts on the jazz world scene” Andy Roberts BBC Radio Wales
"Versatile jazz violinist and vocalist, Azhaar made her name fronting the excellent Brazilian Jazz group Sirius B" Tony Benjamin the Venue, Bristol
"I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Global Wave’s performance. The music was exciting and wide ranging with the sounds of Latin America highly prominent in the mix. Saffar impressed as both a vocalist and instrumentalist and her original songs were also convincing. Everybody played well and the presence of Blomfield in the band’s ranks proved to be a huge bonus, he made a perfect foil for the multi-talented Saffar. On this evidence the début album from Global Wave should be well worth looking out for" The Jazz Mann
"Following on the heels of Latin dancefloor faves Sirius B, Global Wave is a brand new band growing hotter day by day...which is more than can be said for the weather" Steve Henwood The Bell, Bath
