Rik is an accomplished baritone player, and sounds great on the album. The recording quality and mix etc are all very well done. The tunes are all great – they sound and feel like classic hardbop jazz, though they are all fairly obscure songs that only a more-than-casual jazz listener is likely to have heard. / JazzBariSax.com

It is clear that this production not only deserves praise for the quality of the performances, but also for the well-considered choice of repertoire. 'Is That So?' can, also because of its beautiful cover, get a place among the classics of Blue Note from the sixties. / Cyriel Pluimakers, Jazzenzo
