New reviews:
Ulrich Habersetzer from Bayrischer Rundfunk about the album:
“Antje Rößeler und Birgitta Flick sind Meisterinnen der Kommunikation auf Augenhöhe. Auf ihrem Album ‘Sending a Phoenix’ werden Töne, Stimmungen, Melodie und Harmonien auf eine wunderbar offene und herrlich klangsinnliche Art ausgetauscht. Die Saxophonistin Jahrgang 1985 aus Filderstadt, in Berlin lebend, hat die besondere Gabe, frei, sperrig und expressiv spielen zu können, dabei aber die Melodien nicht zu vergessen und besonders ihren herausragenden Sound glänzen zu lassen.”
