Rezensionen

....Línterno album è un esempio di come sia possibile, anche oggi, rinnovare la tradizione degli standards dall`interno, immetendo all`interno di strutture la propria voce personale. Anche gli originals sono di buona fattura, un album che merita un ascolto attendo.Tra mainstream e atmosfere più moderne,una 'fusione' riuscita.

Vittorio Lo Conte 7/2001

Der Charme dieses Albums ist eine eigenwillige Rauheit und Ungeschliffenheit, die viel von Thelonius Monk, Art Pepper und Attila Zoller geerbt hat.

Gitarre & Bass 2/2000

Both music teachers in Germany, Brendgens-Monkemeyer and Voss have worked together since 1988, and the spare sound of Textures benefits from their long association. Using a variety of strategies, including simultaneous soloing, Voss comping behind the guitarist and unison lines, the resultant music becomes very involving. Brendgens-Monkemeyer wrote six of the tunes, while the altoist contributed one and their modernist lyricism mixes well with the standards. The guitarist´s warm hollow-body tone gets its solo moment on 'How My Heart Sings', and his rubato ballad 'Noch Einmal' is a highlight, as is his long, dramatic vamp on 'Unerwunscht'. Nice cover art too.

Cadence Magazine, USA 2/2000

...an album such as this calls for great accompaniment skills as well as solo guitar, which Thomas has. A refreshingly different CD.

The Jazz Guitar Society of Western Australia 10/1999

...dem Oldenburger Gitarristen Thomas Brendgens-Mönkemeyer ist mit seinem kongenialen Partner ein absolut seltenes Kleinod der Duokunst gelungen.

Jazzthetik 10/1999

Dear Thomas, here I send you my congratulations on your interpretation and quality of this excellent CD.

B.Maillot/SAVAREZ S.A., Lyon-France 7/1999

Eine bessere, klügere, elegantere Hommage an den KammerJjazz allgemein und Jim Hall im besonderen, haben wir aus deutschen Landen noch nicht gehört. Einstiegstip: 'Alone together' 

Jazzpodium 5/1999
