“..Moller’s music is never short of mesmerizing... With Christian X Variations, Soren Moller has created what is, thus far, the defining statement in his discography, and a record that's as close to perfect as it gets”. Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz
Moller's vivid swing...seems to coexist beautifully with his
palette of impressionistic colors that drip, like notes in wet paint on a moving musical canvas”. Raul d’Gama Rose, All About Jazz
“Danish-born Soren Moller is a 34-year-old pianist-composer with incredible heart and passion, someone who
makes even the seemingly mudane jazz-classical hybrid burst to life with power, passion, wildly complex tempos
and beautiful syncopations”. Tom Henry, Toledoblade.com
“Damn near unbeatable in straight-ahead mode...this Danish piano guy often sounds more New York than
anything you’ve ever heard..” Tobias Fischer, Tokafi.com
