”It's not often that a young Swedish jazz group captures the listener's attention so completely as the trio Graden/Agnas/Fernqvist do on their debut album. (...) One is struck by the contrasts, from the rampant and wild, to the delicate melodies of 'Zarja'. It's full of expression and relaxation, with an imagination that knows no genre limitations. And all well-worked in a dynamic interplay, where the instruments appear on equal terms.” - Ulf Gustavsson, Upsala Nya Tidning
