”Like a declaration of love in it’s beauty.” - JazzHot

“All the time beautiful, all the time unexpected.” - Sonic

“Joakim Simonsson's ensemble is a genuine working group, which together has made one of this years best records.” - Nerikes Allehanda

“Open Trio plays jazz that mixes Scandinavian folk flavors, neoclassical influences, and free playing in an enticing way... If Saga continue to produce jazz of such emotional depth, exhilarating freedom, and memorable melodicism as they do on Farger, they certainly will be seeing me and, I suspect, many of you, tomorrow.” - All About Jazz

“Brilliant moment with Joakim Simonsson!” - DN
