Bird & Beyond

LLr 044, online ZenneZ Records

‘An original view on Charlie Parker. Bird Lives!, also in this reincarnation.’ Jazzism****

‘The variations in sound colours, the attack of the organ pipes and above all, the perfect, free and improvising ensemble playing make this CD as attractive for organ lovers as for jazz afficionados.’ Trouw****

‘Their version of Scrapple of the apple still shows some marks of the original, but most of the other standards have been totally reconstructed. Exciting ode to ‘Bird’.’ Dagblad van het Noorden****

‘They play with passion, they play fantastically together with audible joy, and they play with lots of humor, and the result is just sublime – this album instantly gets you in a good mood. Like this you have never heard a pipe organ before.’ Moors Magazine
