un résultat qui donne à coup sûr la chair de poule.”(Jazzques ‘about live concert Flying Nimbus)

Het was, kortom, een concert dat je onderdompelde in een bedwelmend universum met een enorm breed bereik dat steeds verankerd bleef in een even duidelijke als idiosyncratische visie. Het duo is bovendien beland op het benijdenswaardige kantelpunt waar muziek spelen eigenlijk spelen met muziek wordt, en dat is iets dat altijd indruk zal maken, mondmasker of niet.”(Guy Peters about live concert Flying Nimbus)
