”The more I listen to this one, the more I like it. The first time around, it was the solid work by drummer Magnus Gran that attracted me. After a few more plays, I still feel that Gran is the key to the music´s success, but I´ve come to appreciate Yasuhito Mori´s dependable bass and Svensson´s guitar textures as equally critical to the project.
Most enjoyable music that will reward repeated listening.” /Stuart Kremsky, Cadence

”Ewan Svensson is one of the best among Swedish jazz guitarists… It is beautiful intimate jazz he offers together with the dense rhythm section of Magnus Gran and Yasuhito Mori.”
/ Stefan Nilson / Nerikes Allehanda

”But it’s actually one of the exceptions that is the highlight of the record: Jimmy van Heusen’s Like someone in love, which Ewan interprets completely solo. It can hardly be done much better. ” Mikael Bengtsson / Norra Västerbottens Tidning

 ”Everything is so wonderfully beautiful and lyrical, which also applies to his fellow musicians, Yasuhito Mori, bass and Magnus Gran, ” Thord Ehnberg / Bollnäs Tidning

”Svensson’s guitar technique is unmistakable, as always, and as before, there is a low-key intensity that captivates and grabs. ” Gert-Ove Fridlund / Hallandsposten

”Ewan Svensson continues his new way of playing, his previously so fierce lyrics have given way to the more melodic. It is about different sounds, Ewan pushes the limits of what the instrument can withstand but without it being scratched for that reason he has good co-musicians in bassist Yasuhito Mori and drummer Magnus Gran. For guitarists, both professionals and amateurs, this CD is a given purchase. / Göran Engström, Smålands-Tidning
