Said about Makross:

”The Music of Makross is in many ways uncomplicated, but it has that free feel and at the same time sympathetic and captivating melodies… Both saxophonists plays logical solos and are backed by a supporting and varied rhythm section in the form of Andreas Henningsson and Kristoffer Rostedt. A very nice album and now there is no excuse not to dust off the old record player that many have in their attics…”
Jan Strand, Orkesterjournalen

 

”The music on their new CD ”Det är inte så lätt”  has a humorous and good-naturedly vibe... The compositions are imaginative, often with a twist, while the song titles are wonderfully obscure.”
-Jörgen Östberg, Orkesterjournalen

Fresh and fierce, explosive and serene in a great big mix. It’s swinging most of the time, the interplay between the four is impressive. Also the often excellent and elaborate compositions that sometimes are presented in the intricately way that Wayne Marsh and Lee Konitz used to do.”
-Jan Olsson, DIGJazz

Great to hear a BAND with a distinct sound and that is well rehearsed with a fun repertoar. I’m a fan!”
 Peter Nilsson, drummer (The Opposite, Plunge, Cecilia Persson, Bobo Stenson)

Makross has a refreshing disrespect and in the faster passages it sound really great.”
