“… all the music on Dive is just as robust, creative and, indeed,
thrilling. So much so that, while there’s a lot of time left for 2014
contemporary jazz Juno rivals to emerge, I honestly won’t be surprised
if it’s Doxas giving the thank-you speech at next year’s awards gala
dinner.” – OTTAWA CITIZEN
“based on complex but hooky melodies” – VOIR
“…his saxophone shows glimmers of Jan Gabarek’s glistening,
full-toned throatiness, but often restrained where appropriate” –
