"Few pianists can combine lyricism with a sense of groove the way that Alexander Nettelbeck does – which partly explains the seemingly effortless way that he can shift from ‘straight’ jazz to classical to reggae to R’n’B to every genre and sub-genre, really…His latest trio album, Here Today is a must-have for anyone interested in compact arrangements, percussive piano sound and creative interplay – as well as in his frequent performances with his trio or… Quartet.  " Nikos Fotakis 'Australian Jazz. net
