    “ Few pianists can combine lyricism with a sense of groove the way that Alexander Nettelbeck does – which partly explains the seemingly effortless way that he can shift from ‘straight’ jazz to classical to reggae to R’n’B to every genre and sub-genre, really. This versatility is perfectly displayed in his discography – his latest trio album, Here Today is a must-have for anyone interested in compact arrangements, percussive piano sound and creative interplay – as well as in his frequent performances with his trio or his Quartet. .” Nikos Fotakis, Australian jazz Net
