"Thematic improvisation defines this trio. The Mismeasure of Man is an eclectic mix of music, experiemental yet melodic. These three blaggards of jazz met at the infamous Trondheim Jazzlinja which has educated the vast majority of Norway's jazz talent."-Saturn Musikk

"Fans of the Scandinavian approach to contempoary jazz will be rewarded with the release of saxophonist Daniel Rorke's two recordings on the satumusikk label.Warm, sparse, compelling and regularly challenging these releases pay jazz a homage whilst transversing traditional folk music of Norway. Both recorded in 2009,'Fear of Faces, The Mismeasure of Man' is in the trio format, whilst 'San'an' the second cd,is a quartet. San'an has the added advantage of having legendary ECM producer Jan Erik Konghaug behind the desk.Bassist Rune Nergaard is featured beautifully on both discs,whilst guitarist Hilmar Jensson is heard only on "San'an". Drummer Per Oddvar Johnansen is on "San'an" and finally drummer Tomas Jarmyr on the earlier recording. Exquisitely played, these two cds are both worthy additions to new European music."-John O'Brien Radio RTRFM Australia
