Reviews of my latest album


4/5 stars

"He is an experienced bandleader and inventive soloist. Perhaps this release will gain him some of the recognition he deserves. It is a superior hard-bop style blowing session...

Wisely he fashions his own variations on the melody without reference to classic versions ... This is a superior ballad interpretation."


”Extremely melodic tenor, without being sleek, the tone is bright, warm, and pleasant, without being too sweet........played with astonishing invention, joy, sincerity and playfulness, that goes hand in hand with a high instrumental skillset...This recording is the strongest proof of inspiration and the inexhaustibility of jazz standards!”


"swinging meanwhile adding an open style with an edge, that gives the listeners pallet true umami - a commendable gem”


"Andreas Toftemark picks up the true jazz spirit in a fresh and inventive way, a perfect album. for the cozy club feeling"


"I'm excited and feel like I got a letter from Andreas telling me that jazz is Alive and Well"


”Here are no big musical surprises – just beautiful, thoughtful, honest music that lasts from now until eternity”


“Toftemark is a very elegant saxophonist, here I see his closeness to Lester Young very pronounced... incredibly courageous, full of warmth, gripping and professionally executed”


"As fine, contemporary interpreters of the tradition, and with that glimpse of the saxophonist’s compositional prowess, the stage seems well and truly set"
