“…a musical feast that demonstrates from start to finish how much music can transcend any man-made boundary.” (03/23, Rootstime.be)

« …an exciting journey back in time and certainly a lot of sounds to (re)discover for many of us. » (17/03/23, Jazzmania.be)

« Thanks mainly to the strong, complex and varied arrangements, this re-creation of Van der Velde’s songs turns out beautifully. » (27/02/23, Mixworldmusic.com)

« Zwerver is an hour of equally hyper-virtuous and ever-changing music from this debut band, and it’s a delight to listen to. » (24/02/23, Lira.se)
