A tour de force of tightly arranged, well-executed contemporary jazz … full of inventive approaches to the quintet format.” … “...what the quintet achieves throughout the album: turning Iversen’s impeccable and creative arrangements into exciting improvised music.”  -  JazzScene 

Brimming with bold sounds, Round Trip is a successful achievement where no redundancy is found. This CD packs all the virtuosity and straightforwardness of these musicians whose rapport is equally laudable since they bring a cutting honesty and luxurious gravitas into the innovative jazz sphere.”                        - JazzTrail
