At the same time original, dynamic, soothing and tinged with cheerfulness, the modern jazz of Jonathan Lindhorst takes you on an attractive and even touching journey. Well done !

“Jonathan Lindhorst ...find(s) a lyrical intensity not often heard on the tenor saxophone. At a time when many players still struggle with overcoming the chops laden post bop school, every note Lindhorst plays sounds thoughtful and well considered”
