Here is an artist, feet firmly rooted in the grounds his musical likes and lives have taken him; he is not weary, rather remains a believer. He is not concerned with modernity for its own sake, rather chooses to remain close to these roots whilst signalling that also he wants to test new waters. And as this record will reveal in its uniqueness, all lovingly pays homage to hisheroes and ”teachers,” and at large this musical artform we call jazz. Patrik´s voice is ernest, resolute, and always engaging. – Seb Sly, June 23 of 2015, Stockholm
