Chris Welch, renowned music journalist, writes:
“Peter Jennings…compares favourably to Keith Emerson of ELP and Jon Lord of Deep Purple. One might even dare to suggest that in improvisational jazz terms he is a superior soloist; he is certainly more tasteful.
…One can imagine an audience of fellow organ players such as Brian Auger and Graham Bond staring nonplussed at Jennings stealing their thunder”.
(From the sleeve notes to the 2010 Repertoire re-issue of the Cressida albums).
