»If I could do music it would sound exactly like this.« Santa Claus

Do we really need another Christmas jazz album? The answer has to be: definitely YES, but only if the music is as good as on this recording. Martin Sasse points out one more time that he’s surely one of the new piano generation’s major thinkers. But words can merely explain the exceptional beauty of this recording while listening can easily bring you Christmas feelings more than just once a year. So go and get it – and then sit back and enjoy.

If you aren’t that familiar with Martin Sasse, this is what others say about him and his music:

»Mr. Sasse is a full service pianist with good compositional ideas and solo motives. Very superb playing. Ditto for his support.« C. Michael Bailey

»...not knowing that Martin Sasse is only 34 years old, you would guess an older pianist is behind this wonderful music, who grew up in the times of Hard Bop and matured in the times of modal Jazz of the sixtys.« Rondo 2 / 2002

»This album catches the talents of another set of jazz wunderkind from Europe, this time the Martin Sasse Trio. When one starts wondering, or pondering, about the future of jazz, it’s time to take down an album like this from the shelf and get reassured that the genre is in good hands. And good hands is exactly what Martin Sasse takes to his piano... Hopefully, Nagel Heyer won’t wait too long before coming out with another album by this appealing trio.«
Dave Nathan

»…Martin Sasse has Oscar Peterson’s sense of swing…« Cadenza

»…one of the most swinging stuff I’ve heard a long time.« Jeff Hamilton

»...this latest recording is one of the most satisfying and well-balanced I have heard, for quite some time. It has an abundance of well-conceived ideas, refreshing elements and inspiring solo work... a recording you would most certainly want to have in your library. Highly recommended.« Jazz Canadiana
