Press Quotes

“The record plays with the dynamics in an excellent way, soft piano and trumpet duets are overlapped from time to time by a contrasting mass consisting of many music layers, resting on a common rhythmicity, guitar passages, electronic instruments and multiple vocals. The sound designer Patrick Karpentski (Patrik Hlavenka―Lake Malawi or Toxique, among others) has done an excellent job and created a sonically coherent, multi-layered album based on the natural strength of acoustic instruments.” ― FULLMOON

“Beata Hlavenková released good records even in the past, but thanks to the more song-like format, a wider audience―even an audience that is not into instrumental jazz as much―can learn about her talent for the first time. Furthermore, her rapport with Reynek’s sublime poetry is almost magical at times.” ― MUSICSERVER
