DE VOLKSKRANT **** (July 2011, Tim Sprangers) on More Socially Relevant Jazz Music: “[..] An organic sound, teeming with pleasure. Driven on by drummer Mark Schilders’ angular grooves, the uptempo pieces sound fresh, spontaneous and enticing. The energetic exchanges between alto saxophonists Maarten Hogenhuis and Ben van Gelder are rock solid, and representative for the variation within the compositions. [..] In the daring solo and duo pieces, Baas’ musical idiom appears to be without limits. His soulful sound on the ballads wins over hearts.” – Read the full article (Dutch)

TOM BEEK (July 2011) on Baas, Lievestro and Goudsmit @ Concertgebouw: “The most wonderful melodies and chords are displayed, full of resourcefulness and ideas leaving us wanting to hear more. His playing is clear, precise and has a strong presence. His introverted virtuosity is contagious. He doesn’t play to impress, but is obviously driven by music itself.” – Read the full article (Dutch)
