"Alex Lindsay was an intriguing complex of many characteristics. He could summon an Irish-bred anger in an argument; he could play the sweetest of 'jazz fiddle'; his mixture of the suave gentleman and the average Kiwi bloke was a delight; and he combined the rogue and the artist with comfortable unconcern for what people thought. All in all, he seemed to be a mixture of Denis Glover and Dan Davin. Like them he was a true representative of 'our' age - the age between the wars." - John Ritchie (from the forward to Alex Lindsay: the man and his orchestra)
