Johannes Cornell wrote in Dagens Nyheter: 

William Sooviks music is a rare mix of free jazz, rock, melancholy and energy. It is hardly calculated, but feels even more genuine. And his band is excellent.

to Malin Wättring 2018


Motivation:

" Malin has already shown an impressive latitude as a musician. She plays in both large and smaller groups, usually saxophone but also guitar and she sings. She has also shown exquisite competence and sense for composition and as an arranger. Her music is almost limitless and spans over many musical fields. It will be exciting to see what this great talent will do in the future. "

Bengt Säve-Söderbergh

Words about Harvest:
"Most beautiful!" - Eyal Hareuveni, Salt Peanuts

"With the album, Wättring has the ambition to challenge the traditional concept of "big band music". And certainly it's a challenge!"
Tobias Magnusson, Göteborgs Fria Tidning

"It's rarley this fun to listen to big band music. The rich compositions on "Harvest" have their logical structure, but are not predictable.
It sounds varied magnificently, mildly sensitive and cool.

Alexander Agrell, Sydsvenskan

"It feels like it's natural to her to work with a larger ensemble."

PM Jönsson, Göteborgs Posten

"It's an unconventional record, because Wättring does not care about the norms in big band music,
but sees the experienced and skilled band more as a resource for her own ideas."

Ulf Johansson, Lira
