" I originally met Nils at Vallekilde a few years ago and was very impressed with his playing and talent.Nils Ryde is a wonderful composer and bass player. I find his compositions so much fun to play on. I think his writing is unique,melodic, and very interesting harmonically. He is also a great bassist as is evident on this recording by his fantastic soloing and great rhythmic support. Lew Soloff/US

”Niels Ryde is not just an innovative and sensitive modern player. He is also a marvelous and unique composer. With brains and heart to spare, Niels takes full advantage of the color palate---taking us on fantastic new journeys which still follow the trajectory of tradition. He is a very special player." - Kurt Elling, vocalist & Blue Note Artist.
