”The group presents a rich sample of versatility and skills within the field modern postbop” (Ulf Thelander, Orkesterjournalen, september 2016)

”The music is self-written with bebop, mainstream and postbop as nearest influences. Great interplay and soloists” (Björn Stenberg, Uppsala Nya Tidning, april 2016)
