Glass Fish

Buy “Glass Fish” at Challenge Records, with Hermine Deurloo (harmonica), Tony Overwater (bass), Joshua Samson (percussion), and guest Jesse van Ruller (guitar).

Rudie Kagie, Vrij Nederland,  November 2012:

Nederlands: “De wereld mag de diva dankbaar zijn voor haar besluit om de altsax in te wisselen tegen de chromatische mondharmonica. Dit album toont aan dat we met een volwaardig jazzinstrument te maken hebben.”

English: “The world should be grateful to the diva for her decision to exchange the alt sax for the chromatic harmonica. With this album, Hermine Deurloo shows that the harmonica is a fullblown jazz instrument.”

Amanda Kuyper, NRC, October 2012:

Nederlands: “Op Glass Fish maakt Hermine met gitarist Jesse van Ruller, bassist Tony Overwater en percussionist Joshua Samson mooie, minimale jazz. Het is een sierlijke dans van vier gelijken die mooi doseren, elkaar de ruimte bieden en goed luisteren naar wat de muziek nog kan gebruiken. Deurloo’s mondharmonica roept vaak associaties op met filmmuziek. Toch is de uitkomst, door de toevoeging van instrumenten als de hang, slidegitaar of ukelele, steeds verrassend en verfijnd.”

English: “With “Glass Fish”, Hermine makes beautiful, minimal jazz, together with Jesse van Ruller on guitar, Tony Overwater on bass, and Joshua Samson on percussion. It is a graceful dance of four equals, who allow each other space, while listening carefully in deciding what their music needs next. Deurloo’s harmonica often calls up associations with film music. Nevertheless, thanks to the combination of instruments such as the hang, slide guitar, or ukelele,  the outcome is consistently unexpected and refined.”

Peter J. Korten, JazzFlits, December 2012:

“The whole is as a glassfish: transparent and clear. Hermine Deurloo sparkles and is thoroughly pure, with apparent playful ease. Not sidestepping its challenges, Deurloo has feeling for beautiful compositions.”
