"With his fourth album, Dave Wilson, on tenor and soprano saxophones, puts a strong foot forward, backed by a tight and raring-to-go rhythm section of young pianist Bobby Avey, bassist Tony Marino and drummer Alex Ritz. From the tricky, pulsing energy of the opening “The Time Has Come,” on which the saxophonist brandishes his big tone and easily tumbling facility, to the simple folk theme of “On The Prairie,” There Was Never makes a varied and mostly powerful impact."

"Between Wilson’s depthful playing on tenor and soprano saxophones, Avey’s rhythmically charged comping and expansive soloing on piano and the consummate rhythm tandem hookup between bassist Marino and drummer Ritz, there is a great deal of magic indeed happening throughout There Was Never."
