”The bass-clarinetist Ville Lahteenmäki’s raucous, ruggedly braying style makes him a notable addition to the Dolphy-Murray-Mahall lineage that produces maximum excitement with every outpouring of notes. His accompanists, drummer Nicolas Leirtre and bassist Trym Saugstad Karlsen, are like himself, students at the renowned Trondheim Conservatory, an institution whose impact on European jazz has been significant in modern times.”
– Kevin Le Gendre / Jazzwise

”Lähteenmäki is indeed very distinctive and original in his music. Although in some of the quietest parts the thought of John Coltrane, for example, creeps into the back of my head, the voice is that of a young and skilled musician who knows the history of the genre well.”
-Arto Murtovaara / Kulttuuritoimitus

”Straight to the point, no fuss – and greedy tough!” Jan Granlie / Salt Peanuts
