"What matters is how they create a meta-harmonic, pan-rhythmic togetherness, connecting seemingly unconnected pulses into a musical whole. Thus, the pieces border closely with New Music, refuse complaisance and are able to act fluid and challenging at the same time. Despite its tendency toward creative abstraction, Reboot has the power to sound very concrete."
Ralf Dombrowski, jazzthing
"Friedrich continues along the path that a Paul Bley or a Bob Degen explored with the later ECM boss Manfred Eicher on bass. The demand for agogics, also in jazz, becomes blissful reality here: fascinating, sensuous sonorities of the piano tangle and disentangle themselves with the highest tonal sensitivity of the drums and songful warm-sounding bass lines."
Thomas Fitterling, Rondo
"In all balancing acts between the tonal and atonal, Reboot is still ultimately a "jazz album," and it's a very strong one, mind you! Unerringly, it accesses art music of the 20th century successfully, namely an invention of Witold Lutoslawski and Arnold Schoenberg's Piano Pieces, Op 11/1."
Stefan Pieper, nrwjazz
"From the first note on, they act with perfect empathy and communicate with instinct, sensitivity and full of passion in a unique way. Never before have the limits of traditional jazz been more excitingly blurred than on Reboot."
Franz X.A. Zipperer, Jazzthetik
"The trio breathes life into the music and sometimes seems to stand in wonder at what emerges. Piano trio jazz can be so exciting."
Thorsten Meyer, Jazzpodium
