Larry Goldings: ‘Thanks Hermine, for a lovely take on my song’
Austin Wintory: ‘Hermine is well worth a serious listen. Deeply gifted harmonica player. The soul of my score on ‘Strangely in love’.
Michael Point in Texas Round Rock Leader: ‘The chromatic harmonica has had very few viruoso performers, especially ones with a creative streak, in its history. Amsterdam’s chromatic harmonica heroine Hermine Deurloo definitely belongs on the small and select list of such artist.
Rudie Kagie, Vrij Nederland, november 2012:
“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, oktober 2012:
“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.
