“Saxophonist Lachy Hamilton joins a rich tradition of programmatic works of Australian jazz ... “[The Alchemist’s] Urim and Thummin spawns a Hamilton tenor solo showing a striking ability to alchemise a liquid flow of ideas into a robust and compelling statement...this is an impressive debut”.
- John Stand, The Sydney Morning Herald, 29 June 2019
“The Alchemist ... album brings together five brilliant young musicians who will be household names in Australian jazz tomorrow.”
