Walk with us
“The music on the duo side is well-paced free improv in a style one associates 1970s Scandinavian group aktion in the wake of Don Cherry's Swedish expatriate phase - percussive, organic and open. The trio configuration adds some live skronk, and the quartet track allows darkly sonorous harmonics to hover over everything.”
(The Wire #409 - UK)
“Is it possible to create an album so divergent stylistically, and at the same time so interesting and addictive? Well, it is. (...) Excellent.”

“Den får store anbefalinger herfra.”
(Niels Overgård - Jazznyt - Denmark)
“This free-associative, extended improvisation shifts naturally between moods and dynamics. It swings between quiet, minimalist drones and soundscapes.”
