"It’s 2021 most purely enjoyable blues listening experience” (LIVING BLUES MAGAZINE)

“It’s a true organ trio effort smeared in fat and grease - no fakery. Uncommonly adept at the art of nailing down funk rhythms, this international threesome infuses groove music with elements of jazz, blues, R&B, soul and gospel as if they’d found the Holy Grail to be the early-1970s, cross-genre funk of Jimmy McGriff. Suggestive of McGriff, but with a modern approach, Wressnig changes the tones and drawbar setting throughout a song and deals from a deck of Jimmy Smith-inspired R&B lines, hooks and licks.The fortyish Graz resident displays tremendous spirit and keen musical intellect as he accentuates the natural beauty of the Hammond.” (DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE)

„Oh yes, Raphael plays a dynamic brand of B-3, his passion commensurate with his technique and his creative intelligence. He's a high-voltage dynamo but also a musician of surprising delicacy and self-reflection. Call him one of the finest blues/funk/jazz B-3 operators anywhere.” (DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE)
