The great attention of the media has its cause in Roger Hanschel's and Laia Genc's extraordinary duo concept and their recent JHM CD release Change Follows Vision. Their music is founded on the factors composition, improvisation and a highly comunicative sensitiveness as well as on the bold sound creations and breakneck speed virtuosity of the two extremely gifted artists. Both partners do enjoy their new project working on the mutual, in every regard inspiring agreement by acting absolutely equal, whether in performing or conceptual artistic concerns. This almost blind musical faith is reflected by a lot of the duo's structures: in the direction of their common navigation in improvisation, the very own sound of their dialogues and, of course, the choice of pieces for the release.

"Wie die beiden aufeinander eingehen und im perfekten Zusammenspiel agieren, ist beeindruckend und sollte unbedingt live erlebt werden." (Melodiva, November 2018)

"Gemeinsam sind Hanschel und Genc tatsächlich ein Musterbeispiel an Gleichberechtigung. [...] Wer diesen beiden zuhört, lernt für die Zweisamkeit." (Michael Laages, NDR, Jazz-CD der Woche, 11.10.2018)
