There is a palpable sense of honesty, thought, experience and commitment that is apparent from the first note.

– Dave Liebman

Eero Koivistoinen is truly a legend in Finnish jazz – or as  the current terminology would have it, a genuine ‘local hero’. He really deserves much greater recognition across Europe…

– Stuart Nicholson

Eero Koivistoinen has been one of the most constantly creative saxophonists, composers, and band leaders I’ve known through the years..  He is always developing and documenting music that is full of his beautiful honest expression… I’m a big fan…

– Joe Lovano
