"Joseph Blake, Freelance music journalist"

"Saxophonist Paul Wainwright's new CD, Plank Spankin' features the veteran musician's juicy soprano and tenor sax stylings backed by his elegantly funky quartet SaxSafari and studio stars John Ferraro and Gabriel Mark Hasselbach. Wainwright and company's bluesy jazz fusion is a silky, eclectic collection of clever originals and a smart, seductive remake of War's Low Rider. A triumph!
