Lochs' tribute to a trumpets most important component is certainly something! Sparks fly in this powerful progressive jazz played with joy and verve. Hub van Laar, trumpet and flugelhorn builder, Hub's notes newsletter 'Trumpet player Bert Lochs has a pleasant tone, creamy and fat...With his considerable technique he is able to tell his story extensively...An intriguing CD Cees van der Ven, Draai om je oren, jazzweblog

Lochs is a gifted and versatile trumpet player: always investigative, seldom predictable; introspective and intimate. Hans Gulpen, De Gelderlander

Lochs a nimble and dexterous trumpet player, who reveals his virtuosity mainly in the moulding of his sound - hence the title of his cd. He is a man who truly knows how to make his flugelhorn sizzle, instead of just using the instrument for ballads. In Florian Zenker and Jasper Somsen he found his perfect sparring-partners: they completely follow the broad spectrum of atmospheres, rhythms and melodies Bert Lochs wishes to unleash upon the world. Herman Te Loo, Jazzflits, internet magazine

Bert freaks out in a very controlled way...he makes his trumpet speak, squeak, holler and wail. Jan Klupper, Muziekpodia

‘It is a pleasure listening to music which is born of today with firm roots in jazz, played by three musically and technically well-equipped musicians. Excellent, lyrical compositions.’ Ack van Rooijen, Dutch trumpet artist about 'Mouth Pieces'

Personally, I do believe that your music fits in with the best.... And you deserve to be heard.... I only play the best.' Mike Matheny, Radioio
