'Collective improvisation is a strong feature of Thelonious4. In those moments energy, playfulness and creativity are so much visible. (...) When musical structures fade, the band makes a very strong impression. (…) Apart from strong individual contributions to the music, Thelonious4 always put collective sound in the first place' (Armand van Wijck, Jazzenzo.nl)
