Malstrom - Klaus-Dieter

„The most promising vortex on the European stage.“ , Jan Hocek,

„The album never lets up. It defies easy categorization. It is a wild, unvaccinated hodge-lodge of tracks that is light years away from anything one might describe as relaxing. But, you’ve got to admire the band’s energy and vigor“ Rob Mallows, London Jazz News

"No, this trio can't be pinned down and that's what makes their new album so exciting. There, hefty grooves dissolve grooves dissolve into free-flowing cascades of sound, from which a beguiling melody suddenly emerges. A genre- mix - rather genre-hopping, with a rather silly humor peeking around the corner again and again. peeking around the corner. [...] This is jazz with high standards, which is a lot of fun to listen to." BR24 Kulturnachrichten

„It's like having a drill hole into your head and injecting an energy drink directly into your cerebral cortex. [...] Here comes the shape of power jazz trio.“ Takeshi Goda, Jazz Tokyo
