New CD Small Moments
All About Jazz review
"Alto saxophonist Karolina Strassmayer and drummer Drori Mondlak's second release as co-leaders Small Moments is a collection of lean and gripping original compositions that the superlative quartet embellishes with their sophisticated and inventive spontaneity.
Prior to them joining forces both Strassmayer and Mondlak were well known as creative and intelligent improvisers and instrumentalists in their own right. Together they have refined their art to achieve a bold elegance that is both delightful and provocative."
Rifftides by Doug Ramsey
"In their third album together the spaciousness and delicacy of Karolina Strassmayer’s alto saxophone meld with the understated power of her husband Drori Mondlak’s drumming. This international quartet’s blend of consistent quality and adventurousness gives it staying power. It is one of the most interesting small groups at work today."
