Summerflood is the discovery of this summer! The Juergen Friedrich-Quartet creates an enormous depth with minimalistic structures and chamber music-like nuances. Kenny Wheeler never acts as a guest star but plays with like-minded companions moving, hopeful, magnificent music." jazzthing

If his compatriot Johannes Brahms would arise from the dead and become a jazz musician he would doubtlessly appreciate the astonishing architectural logic of Friedrich`s composition "The right mistake". Best new jazz artist, huge creative potential, access to innovation and a higly personal concept. A fantastic CD.
Arnaldo DeSouteiro, Tribuna Bis

Juergen Friedrich is the great, young composition talent. He is the first non-american who won the Gil Evans Award. 'The Right Mistake' and 'My Shy I' are tomorrow`s jazz standards."
Matthias Creutziger

Rich aesthetic tone colors, expressive lyrical music, very original, yet with all the knowledge of the jazz traditions.

He writes very well, I think.
Kenny Wheeler in jazzwise
