“..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 pianist-composer with incredible heart and passion, someone who makes even the seemingly mundane jazz-classical hybrid burst to life with power, passion, wildly complex tempos and beautiful syncopations”/ Tom Henry,

“Damn near unbeatable in straight-ahead mode…this Danish piano guy often sounds more New York than anything you’ve ever heard” / Tobias Fischer,
