"As Dr. Reinhard Kager writes in the liner notes: "No, this music does not sound like jazz, more like contemporary composition. And yet, what seems like composed new music is in fact improvised. Without prior arrangement among the players. In the moment. And decided on a lightning speed by the players. Despite all the timbral distance to the classical jazz idiom, these players remain true to the original spirit so much more than the countless mainstream imitators - by improvising completely in the spark of the moment." "-Leo
