"...Marc van Vugt�s Big Bizar Habit, in which string players yield to and rise against horn players and in which the more recent history of jazz has been brought together.."

"...Echoes of Charlie Haden�s Liberation Orchestra and John McLaughlin�s Mahavishnu Orchestra."

"Music on the one hand filled with passion and on the other driven by the heartbeat of a hectic life."

"The broad and sometimes unusual harmonic inventions evoke a panoramic atmosphere in which intimate, poetic stories are told."

"While the vaudeville atmosphere remains recognizable swiss replica watches , the jazz element is slightly more emphasized and there�s even room for some solid rock and roll."

"Mostly the music sounds attractively mysterious, a little wayward but never rejecting, at times even seductive."
About Strings Only

"Modern chamber music full of harrowing and twisting harmonies and sadly comforting songs"

"Their performance resulted in nearly an infinite number of both original and catchy melodies, the duo must have a warehouse of songs hidden somewhere, containing enough material for the ages to come.

"In between the fairy-like sounds, for example, there was this funky arrangement in which the strings sounded like the horn section behind Stevie Wonder and the string players gratefully benefited from the ample space provided for improvisation."
