“Wim Bronnenberg made a big impression. (…) Refined and lyrical (…) Musical intelligence (…)” (De Volkskrant)

“Swinging and sounding unpretentious, the quartet played music bursting with joy. (JAZZ)

CD STREAM “A name to remember” (NRC Handelsblad)

“In a class of his own…” (Heaven)

CONNECTED “I LOVE your new CD! Your guitar playing-acoustic and electric are outstanding, but I expected that. I remember hearing you years ago in Utrecht. What really impressed me is your writing-your compositions”. (Jim Hall)

“The music is very well conceived and the sound of the group is very nice. Congratulations!” (Enrico Pieranunzi)

Secretly one of the best ****. For years now Wim Bronnenberg is secretly one of the best jazz guitarists in the Netherlands. (…) Bronnenberg’s playing, his warm, full tone and the ability to remain fascinating and evocative in prolonged solo’s is but one of the charms of this lovely yet spirited record.” (De Volkskrant)

“An extraordinary CD (…) Bringing styles together as is done here shows musicianship and understanding.” (Brabants Dagblad)

 “CD of the month (April 2006, Dutch national radio) The diversity of Bronnenberg’s pieces is striking. Catchy themes (Hidden Agenda) and a tingling ballad (Angel Falls), on acoustic guitar for a change, lift this admirable production to an international level.” (Jazzflits)

Bronnenberg likes to be challenged by distant notes, twisting and turning them into flexible garlands, generating music that is logical and surprising at the same time.” (BN De Stem)

“Like Jesse van Ruller and Martijn van Iterson, Bronnenberg definitely deserves a place on the list of Dutch top guitar players. With his open, relaxed way of playing and adventurous interpretations of his very personal and highly interesting compositions, he’s somewhat in a class of his own.” (Draai om je oren)

“Seldom in Jazz at the Crow a similarly high level was reached. Wim Bronnenberg proved to be an authentic guitarist with few references to guitar icons or existing schools.” (Draai om je oren)
