“Fergus Hambleton returns in 2021 with a musical surprise - moving away from his world music and pop background into jazz. And it's a seamless transition as he is a student of music and has assembled a team of phenomenal jazz players to give us authentic and sincere renditions of several jazz standards. The real treat, however, is Fergus's ability to write his own jazz compositions which both compliment the genre and his own voice.” - Jaimie Vernon,
— The Canadian Pop Music Encyclopedia
