”Henrik Pultz Melbye is a strong saxophone player working with a personal sound. Reminiscences of Jesper Zeuthen, Ornette Coleman and others from the experimental side of jazz, but Pultz Melbye manages to transform his own soul into the instrument.” Niels Overgaard,

“Pultz Melbye has many interesting ideas, and gets enough space and time to present them. He’s a very good saxophone player, who probably will disappoint someone with his very special saxophone sound, while others will love it.” -Jan Granlie,
