“Hermine Deurloo has been creating a stir recently with her recordings; Living Here is one of her finest. She plays the chromatic harmonica with the effortless fluency of a saxophonist and is a creative and melodic musician.”Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene, February 2017

“It is clear that Deurloo adds a new dimension to the brilliancy of the immortal Toots: complex rhythms, soft dissonants, and attention to current musical trends. It’s a question of time for an international breakthrough for this unique harmonica musician.” —  Cyriel Pluimakers, Jazzenzo Jazz Magazine, February 2017

“The influence of Toots Thielemans is, perhaps inevitably, noticeable in Deurloo’s harmonica style but she has also developed her own language, with occasional hints of her background as a saxophonist, which makes her soloing genuinely investigative and always, but always, highly musical.”London Jazz News, May 2019

“Exciting compositions, modern and enticing, melancholically melodious, and innovative!”Johan Bakker, Nederlands Dagblad, January 2017

“The sound of the harmonica always involves a bit of musical melancholy, but the pieces on the new album by Hermine Deurloo are different in style and tone. Wistful ballads, melodic but also very rhythmic compositions, hectic jazz, Brazilian. Almost all of them written by Deurloo or Frerichs, as on Deurloo’s previous album Welling, with the Zapp4 string quartet, here again it’s about transparent, open chamber jazz, light, and elegant.”Vera Vingerhoeds, January 2017

“Four top notch musicians, with a fantastic result: as diverse as they are steady, sometimes introverted, sometimes exuberant, eleven simply very great pieces, especially by Deurloo and Frerichs.”VPRO Gids, February 2017
