Some of my songs

“Here is a writer not content with peddling jazz covers but a composer hell bent on writing some new jazz standards” – Blues & Soul

“What sets this album apart is the quality of Webb’s writing and arranging … his songs have a timeless quality, many of them sound as if they ought to be standards” –

“Original songs by Alex Webb both lyrically and musically nail the times” –

 “An amazing songwriter” – Ayanna Witter-Johnson, Jazzwise

 “Original songs penned by Webb … are bright, tuneful surprises” –
