The duo`s compositions and improvisations surprise by its material which is unusually orchestrated and shows distinctive colours concerning the structure of the arrangements. Both partners are working originally and with great variety. There is no passage in the 52 minutes of this production in which a bass or drums would be missed. The elements "groove", "time" and "changes" definitely are recurring factors in the patterns of the improvisations of the two colleagues.

"Entstanden ist ein überaus spannendes und vielseitiges Album, das auch insbesondere aufgrund seiner Klangqualität brilliert." (Christian Kautz, 20.06.2017, likehifi.de)
