"A first-rate composer"

"Alex Terrier's soprano is one of the more poetic and naturally sounding expressions heard out of that horn in a long while"
S. Victor Aaron,

"Alex Terrier exhibits many of the same qualities associated with George Garzone: a compelling logic in the construction of his long solos accompanied by a ready recourse to the outer reaches of the vocabulary that both players have inherited from Coltrane."
All About Jazz

"Alex is a very gifted and expressive saxophonist. He's shown in performance a very strong developing conception as a composer and a soloist"
– Joe Lovano

"A performance that fans of the Blue Note Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter sides should appreciate."
-Ron Weinstock
