Executive producer Mike Nock (in connection with the relaes of "kelidoscope")
"As well as being a big fan of saxophonist Lars Møller's music I'm also
very impressed with his overall musical concepts. Intelligent and melodic, his compositions
show a broad awareness of contemporary trends, including his love of Indian music. His
talented group of musicians interpret his compositions with sensitivity and understanding
and I'm very pleased and honoured to be able to present their latest recording on NAXOS/JAZZ
where I hope it finds the large international audience it deserves".
"Pure delight for the ears. The very essence of the so-called lyrical Nordic
sound mixed with sizzling funk, incredibly beautiful ballads, and a rare devil-may-care
- Peter Nørgaard, Ekstra Bladet 1998.
"Kaleidoscope is another victory for the fine saxophonist, who in of spite assimilating
with the Indian tradition still stands as a true jazz musician."
- Jørgen Siegumfeldt,
Berlingske Tidende 1998.
"There is an exceptional kind of intimacy between the four of them its
inner cogency makes it some of the most beautiful I've heard him play in a long time."
- Thorbjørn Sjøgren, Politiken 98.
"Lars Møller and his group are something quite unique. One does not only
sense a technical superiority underneath, it is also clear that this is a band that
plays exceptionally well togethe."
- The Musician 1998.
"It is a beautiful and clarified CD filled with integrity . A team
of musicians, that have an almost telepathic relation"
- Jazz Special 1998.
