...He belongs to the great soloists of Jazz, irrespective of what side of the Atlantic you
look... OJ, Jφrgen Φstberg
...Bergcrantz is world class... THE WIRE, Richard Cook
...flows with lovely long lines... JAZZ TIMES, Dave Burns
... (In a certain way hes the man on the spot here. Given the sense of
Miles ghost wafting through these proceedings, the brassman on hand better have
something to say. No worries here. Bergcrantz fills those shoes admirably).
Hes blowing tough and lyrical with a gorgeous softball tone, burning or
sighing as the music requires, and the knack for the right effect... CADENCE
