The press about Saxify

(See all reviews and interviews on )

Jazzism (NL,May 2016): “Really a beautiful album!”

OOR (NL, April 2016): “Without any restriction: Saxify is a true magnum opus.”

Het Parool (NL, 25-03-2016): “On Saxify the whole funk history gets mixed up, while it also sounds contemporary and modern, streetwise also.”

Nederlands Dagblad (NL, 22-04-2016): “Saxify sounds uncomplicated and danceable, but musically the album stays fascinating and shows more depth than on might expect after first listening. (…) Saxify is - for our country - a rare funky album.”

Muziekweb (NL, 07-04-2016): “The admirable arrangements and Alt’s energetic playing stand out (…). This album puts Susanne Alt at once at the top of international funk acts.”

De Telegraaf (NL, 26-03-2016): “Funky Beach party”

Heaven (NL, July/August 2016): “Unusual Energy”

HMV Brand New Sax (Japan, march 2016): “This is a real groove grinder.”

Spiegel Online Kultur (Germany, 02-07-2016): “For her album "Saxify" the 38-year old put an explosively playing band together, (…) featuring Fred Wesley, the grand master of funky trombone playing.”

Limburgs Dagblad (NL, 31-03-2016): Alt (…) provides a layered and creative production and hereby prevents that this festive funk is played too much straightforward.

Jazzpodium (Germany, 06/2016): “Prince is dead but his spirit lives on. (…) Similarly to the deseased Maestro from Minneapolis Alt creates a funk mosaic of multiple exciting parts, digging deep into funk of the 80’s and 90’s. (…) Best way to listen: On vinyl!”

Lust for life (May, 2016): “Still, she doesn’t get stuck in the past because the album sounds fresh and vital, while Alt leaves her own signature very clearly.”

Maxazine (NL, 28-03-2016): “A heck of an album by this saxy funk ambassador!” (9/10)

Funkblog (NL, 08-04-2016): “The whole album sounds very good and naturally the saxophone playing by Susanne stands out. 

Saxophone Life (UK, April 2016): “if you’re looking for an album to put a smile on your face, this is the one - and you can get it on vinyl, too!

8Weekly (NL, 26-04-2016): “12 tracks, (…) none of them are ordinary, and of a high quality. One who suffer from narrow-mindedness, can’t place Alt, one who is broad-minded will enjoy many hours of listening pleasure.

Podiuminfo/Festivalinfo (NL, 06-05-2016): “Altogether, Saxify is a party with enviable guest musicians, and you want to join.”

Ntb (NL, 05/2016): “Top album!”

Allaboutjazz (Germany, 09-07-2016): “Saxify” is like fresh cheerful funk fireweorks. You wouldn’t guess it’s from North Europe.”

Cultuurpodium Online (NL, 01-07-2016): “The album sounds nice and will be liked by many non-jazz-lovers.”

Melodiva (Germany, 06-07-2016): “Saxify” is a must for fans of funk and wind players and is obligatory for dancing maniacs.”
