"Indeed here one has to discard old habits that nest in certain listening niches. Fuchs' hand guides the octet combination through elegant, lively, and yet mysterious impulses and melodies. On accordion, Stadler's imagination takes flight repeatedly. Bassist Oster is Fuchs' "tower of strength." Hillmann once again lives up to his reputation as a melodic drummer. And the first amongst equals, Fuchs, blows through all ten pieces with her intensive Melos, intimate and yet simultaneously exhilaratingly and excitingly inventive."
Guido Fischer

"Christina Fuchs' recording with No Tango & Strings is one of the most outstanding and musically right tango-jazz releases of the year 2010."
