'The most natural young double-bassist in years.’ – The Evening Standard
‘Thornton has a sound that recalls the succulent tone of Paul Chambers, and the more recent work of bass behemoth Christian McBride, and as an alert accompanist with a listenable way about him, Thornton is the real thing.’ – Stephen Graham
‘Thornton is a player with a strong technique who uses the range of the bass well, and is capable of great depth, emotion and lyricism.’ – Rob Edgar, londonjazz.blogspot.co.uk
