Reviews:

Oberg and multi-reedist Eberhard put a new spin on tunes that in the main were composed 40 or 50 years ago. Another indication of their skills is how their originals cause no ripples when floating next to the American composed tracks. JazzWord / Ken Waxman 2016

...a divine concert full of surprises and beauty. There isn't too much comparable.
