It is a testament to his compositional skill that his own tunes fit so well with the older pieces and to his arranging skill that the covers feel so fresh.” – Fiona Mactaggart – Scottishjazzspace

…a disc that impresses with sophisticated playing and beautifully unadorned classic acoustic trio sound, which pleases throughout and makes you want more of this trio.” – Ingo J.

In the songs, apart from wonderful melodies and unbelievable warmth, the ear will also be pleased with the multitude of solos, performed neatly, in an impressively delightful way…” – Marta Ratajczak – Babskim Ukem
