“This is pretty cool – great compositions, very good performances all around and
creating a cool atmosphere.Extemporize seem to be a mix of
Ian Carr’s Nucleus and Nils Petter Molvaer”
(Wulf Müller A&R Okeh Records)
"Deep grooves and masterful musicianship.
A bold and often dazzling listening.
"There’s plenty of vitality and personality in the approach,
The thing moves, and there’s an immediacy in the writing and
performance ethic that makes the whole thing rattle and rip".
