“It´s apparent that Bévort joyfully makes use of the different possibilities she has as composer and arranger when it comes to the many possible combinations of instruments in this ensemble. She shows both overview and reserve of strength. The release is a remarkable and particular delight”  – Jazznyt.blogspot, Niels Overgård “It´s a release that shows thought-through integrity and where the melodies are in focus…..the lovely «Heavy Feather» could almost sound like the score for a film…….Altogether «Which Craft?» is a fine release definitely worth listening to from a Danish musician that ought to have far more concerts booked in her calendar – not just in the Copenhagen area but also in Norway, Sweden and Finland” – Salt-peanuts.eu, Jan Granlie
