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

"One of Sweden's major new saxophonists and composers." Jan Granlie - Salt & peanuts
