“Masterful technique of a well-rehearsed ensemble… fresh and original compositions which are both enlighting and entertaining.”   -Uri D. Herscher, President and CEO, Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles

“Mattan’s music is flowing, bright and listener friendly, his flute sound is clear, crispy and melodic, and the Israeli-Brazilian-Swiss ensemble is the ultimate contemporary Jazz sound, spiced with warm unique flute sounds from Klein. Mattan Klein’s virtuoso improvisation lifts Jazz-flute playing to new heights.”   -Yossi Harsonsky, Senior Music Critic, Maariv
