Are We In Diego?
Paul Rutherford, Ken Vandermark, Torsten Müller & Dylan van der Schyff
"This recording features the late trombonist, Paul Rutherford, in an outstanding performance from 2004. The band was concluding a West Coast tour and shows both fire and sensitivity, delivering two extended improvisations and four well-focussed miniatures. With Ken Vandermark (reeds), Torsten Müller (contrabass), & Dylan van der Schyff (drums, percussion). "

Peter Brotzmann Chicago Tentet
""It's hard to give a general appreciation for eight quite different line-ups, ranging from the minimal duets to the full-blown orchestra. Here it is : the Tentet, it must be said, is magnificent: wild, predictably unpredictable, raw, overwhelming, gargantuan, energetic, forceful and any other adjective that fits in this kind of thesaurus. But it is absolute fabulous fun for the lovers. You can laugh because of the sheer power and chaos, but the musicians are clever enough to vary with slower, often moving and sensitive moments, giving both artists and listeners a break before all hell breaks loose again." -Free Jazz Blog"
