"This is a very listenable album. I think all ages, especially young and old lovers will enjoy it. The melodies are definitely tinged with romance and the playing greatly enhances them. These musicians really understand these melodies."
Liner notes by Kenny Wheeler

 

Reviews

 

05/10/1996 Jazz Nu, NL

‘tales of the frog’: here plays a fine rhythm section...music, where melancholy and optimism constantly fight to win.

 

02/06/1996 Volkskrant, NL

The most mature music comes from the Balthaus/Lochs Quartet... flowing pieces and musicians who have mastered their material. Balthaus plays solo’s using consequent lines, with logical climaxes.

 

10/05/1995 Jazzpodium, D

‘tales of the frog’: Convincing modern Jazz, performed by a fresh and active band.

 

03/04/1995 Drums & Percussion, D

‘tales of the frog’: beautiful sounds, great songs and a quartet of international standard.
