"Vivid jazz, with a very tangible, dynamic beat. Yet even when the group pushes the intensity, the marriage of beat and melody are never far off."   All About Jazz 

“You’re immediately taken by the sauciness and the contagious joy of playing. The scope of the music is striking, from fusion to Brecht-inspired and Indian-oriented. All equally wonderful, vivid!” Alexander Agrell  Helsingborgs Dagblad

 "The musical material  melodically and rhythmically varies from soft ballads to more passionate and bubbly songs. Bassist Owe Almgren is an imaginative musician and the interaction in unison with Björn Almgren's powerful tenor sax makes the quartet at times sound bigger than they are, which is enhanced by Tommy Kotter's subtle and pulsating piano parts. What holds everything together are Martina Almgren’s smooth and responsive drums that wind themselves around the other musician’s powerful and rich musical expressions."  Norrbottenskuriren
