About “Surely”/Makiko Hirabayashi Trio; 

“Surely is a magnificent creation that stands resolutely defiant, beckoning while withholding its secrets.”
(***** All About Jazz, USA)

“Colourful, delicate, transparent, and self-assured trio album.”  (***** GAFFA, DK)

“…listening to these three musicians is pure rapture … an album that is warm from the heart, more jazz-suite than new-bop, convincing in its dreamwalking togetherness.”  (Nordische Musik,DE)

“…Makiko Hirabayashi’s piano playing is of stunning beauty”  (Peter J. Korten – Jazzflits, NL)

“the happiness of musical creation exudes from every track and yet, just as evident, is an intellectual rigour that is not merely happy, but actually introspective; finally, this music is wide open and inviting while remaining essentially mysterious.” (***** All About Jazz, USA)
