“The concise improvisations are highly intense, disciplined and cerebral, reflecting Melbye restless, searching spirit. All together these improvisations solidify Melbye complex and rich language and his commanding usage of extended breathing techniques, including circular breathing, creating feedback effects and drone soundscapes.”
Eyal Hareuveni, freejazzblog

“He’s exploring the possibilities of the saxophone with minimalistic tonepaintings and sound-wrenching tensions.”
It’s challenging, varied and exciting.”
Niels Overgård, Jazznyt.com

“His way of playing makes the music sound multi harmonic and his concert was very fascinating and interesting.”
Jan Granlie, salt-peanuts.eu

“…and in Ud over stepperne you are taken from Melbye’s gentle solopart to a hard medium-swing with the whole trio in full vigor and a powerfull sax improvisation. At last also a sweeping Rollins-salute in a light calypso-feel with Halli Hallo.

Henrik Pultz Melbye Trio is a warm welcomed record debutant skillfully playing real acoustic jazz straight from the melting pot without epigoni, but deeply personal and heartfelt devotedly.”
-Bjarne Søltoft, Jazz Special

“Henrik Pultz Melbye is a strong saxophone player working with a personal sound. Reminiscences of Jesper Zeuthen, Ornette Coleman and others from the crooked side of jazz, but Pultz Melbye manages to transform his own soul into the instrument.”
-Niels Overgaard, Jazznyt.blogspot.dk

“The Melbye Trio offers a bold, left-off-center and quite expressive take on the classic sax trio, suggesting new arresting sonic spectrum and new kind of interplay for this seminal format.”
“The following “Ud over stepperne” highlights Melbye’s charismatic delivery and nuanced timbral search, reflecting the Ornette Coleman fast-shifting rhythmic dynamics…”
-Eyal Hareuveni, freejazzblog.org

“It happens with simmering sections and open and fresh whiffs, where avantgardelegends like Ornette Coleman and Albert Aylmer are lurking in the back and where Henrik Pultz Melbye with his powerfull tenorsaxophone playing moves on, not rarely with a fabulating subtlety, that can give associations to the old tenor-colossus Sonny Rollins”
Kjeld Frandsen, Berlingske
