"In trio format, Risby has produced some most compelling work, beautiful piano solos, at times romantic and dramatic, and solid arrangements which bring the music on "Stories" alive."

Gail Brennan, The Sydney Morning Herald

"Risby can mount a sparkling flood of ideas which activates his superb rhythm team, but the overall feeling is meditative and unashamedly pretty. Risby has a very clean technique and he has some intriguing and highly pleasing things to say with it."
