...Moods is a superb album and a showcase for non- American jazz, and is rapidly becoming one of my albums of the year...... ......One seldom equates Austria with having any significant jazz talent, outside of Joe Zawinul, but Moods, by Michaela Rabitsch and Robert Pawlik, proves conclusively that jazz lives on in Austria. John M. Peters, Music Watch #11

High Class, Sassy Brass…that is the ever-evolving legacy of the Rabitsch & Pawlik duet when their Moods spin you! ...This is an innovative jazz disc, bright, precise, and most of all, diabolically up tempo! ....
