descriptions, reviews, &c.

"...The unusual combination of bass clarinet and trumpet in this quartet setting is what I wanted to suss out. And the way Joachim's sound blends with Thomas' and how their playing carries each other's playing through the landscapes thrills me every time they phrase and improvise together. Having played music with Pascal for more than ten years now, he was again not only the old friend and great musician he is, but also the multi-dimensional artist who continues to surprise me and challenges my own playing and writing every time we get together. What you are holding in your hands is the result of a new collaboration and a new sound of European quartet improvisation developed in New York City - the debut recording of POLYLEMMA... ...which is a choice from multiple options, each of which is (or appears) equally (un-) acceptable or (un-) favorable. Confronting this polylemma - this wall of options - and making these choices was and continues to be a joyful, liberating, and highly rewarding experience; a never ending story and our plea and model to encourage you to self-expression." -Joe Hertenstein
