„Vigorously swinging… Here jazz gets ventilated!“ (Jochen Siemens in STERN 3/2018, 4/5 stars)

"Molenaar’s touch on the keys,always leaves space for the elegant bass lines and the dancing cymbals of his companions.

But finally it’s the latin tinted showpieces such as "Bossa Del Calvito“ or „No Dancing“ (the song name is a good joke) that distinguish the band from the masses of piano trios."
(Rolf Thomas in JAZZTHING February/March 2018)

„High-torque and self-confident, but never over-produced and equipped with tremendous jazz grip - a blessing“ (Gregor Poschoreck on SOULTRAINONLINE, 4/5 stars)

„A very vivid mix of styles - inspiring and pretty relaxing jazz“ (Christian Kautz on LIKEHIFI, 4/5 stars)
