”Swedish jazz has in Jacob Karlzon a musical personality of rare magnitude” --Politiken (Denmark)

“Pianist Jacob Karlzon is quite simply superb. His solos tell a story while incorporating surprising harmonic devices; his left hand accompaniment moves between the forcefulness of a McCoy Tyner to the subtlety of a Bill Evans. Karlzon may well be one of the finest emerging jazz pianists anywhere in the world.” --Garry Lee, Australian daily paper.

“Karlzon stakes a credible claim to be counted up there alongside such hallowed Swedish pianists as Bengt Hallberg, --Jan Johansson and Bobo Stensson”
