”[Badenhorst] combines a never-ending search for adventure, a natural direction and a warm tone into an interesting and personal story.... A wonderful storyteller...” - Knack Magazine (Belgium)

Over the past year or so, Belgium-born clarinetist, Joachim Badenhorst, has become the one clarinetist to watch with some half dozen discs on different labels. -Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery NY.

Badenhorst's solos are structured, focused and above all emotional.- freejazz-stef.blogspot.com
