Helge Olsen Bergens Tidene Desember 2010: The quartet utilizes a modern jazz language for individual views, that blows you away and leave you behind with a big smile.
Patchwork is joy from the first second. It is both modern and anchored in tradition. .... Let's hope Winther Storm will make more albums. This is a recommendation. 19 of 20 ein Ubevlieger Ingo Andruschkewitsch - www.musikansich.de
