– Vi utvecklar spelet på konserter och turnéer tillsammans och bygger upp nytt material med repetitioner.

"Internationell jazz-trio briljerade på hotellet "Trion som ofta befinner sig på jazzscener världen över överraskade med fantastiska klanger där Tomas Janzons gitarr försänker lyssnaren i behaglig njutning. Hans mjuka anslag och krispiga ton spänner över ett stort re­gister av jazzens pärlor men också i egna kompositioner. Mästaren är fint uppbackad av rythmmästaren Essiet Okon Esslet som hanterar sin kontrabas mästerligt och framkallade vågor av toner som är lika imponerande i solopartier som i ensemble­ spel. Därtill höjer trummisen Will Terrill helhetsintrycket med sitt fina följbara trum­ spel.” -Säffletidningen 28 nov. 2015.

"Gädjande nog är salen full denna måndagkväll. Gitarrist Tomas Janzon stortrivs tillsammans med spelkompisarna Essiet Essiet på kontrabas och Will Terrill på trummor. Bandledarens egna kompositioner flätas smman med ett kräset urval ur standardrepertoaren. Förhållningssättet är öppet. Ofta spelade nummer som Polka Dots and Moobeams och My Funny Valentine skiner fortfarande i trions kapabla händer. Mellan låtarna underhåller Janzonmed roande anekdoter och talar om jazzens snobbiga ackord med befriande självdistans."
–Lasse Stenman Haparandabladet, Dec 2015.

..."ett mjukt anslag, en krispig ton och jag njuter av att dras in i hans melodiska flöde och läckra skalklättringar." Magnus Eriksson, Lira.

“New York-based guitarist Tomas Janzon plays tasty renditions...original territory ...with soulful authority. “ -Bill Milkowski, JazzTimes.

"one of the best jazz-guitar tones you'll hear.... one of the best jazz guitar records from the past year." - John Heidt, Vintage Guitar.

“With Janzon's velvet-like textures floating as if on water, the quartet's music moves with soul.” -Jim Santella, LA Jazz Scene.

“This is one of those unique albums that will please ordinary music lovers as well as jazz guitar aficionados. Mr. Janzon’s style ranges from cool to passionate but always melodic and eminently listenable.”
-Dave Walker, Dave Walker Music, Just Jazz Guitar

“Janzon’s warmly soul-tinged lines over Hillery’s staccato chords and Heath’s winking, on-and-off shuffle.” -Alan Young, Lucid Culture Guitarist Tomas Janzon’s Experiences is a fine exercise in tonal contrasts. And it swings. -All About Jazz New York. …the guitarist’s subtle, feeling way with a melody. –Michael Steinman, Cadence.
In English: –We build our playing together at concerts and tours. We develop new material at rehearsals.

"To our delight/enjoyment the room is packed tonight. Guitarist Janzon loves the situation together with his colleagues Essiet Essiet and Will Terrill. The leaders own compositions are intertwined with a careful selection from the standards repertoire. The modus operandi is openness. Often played numbers as Polka Dots and Moonbeams and My Funny Valentine are shining in the capable hands of the trio. Janzon engages in between the tunes with entertaining anecdotes, and jokes about the many complicated/snobbish chords in the jazz vocabulary with liberating self-distance. But every concert has an ending and after more than an hour of uplifting music we have to say goodbye. " ¬–Lasse Stenman Haparandabladet, Dec 2015.

"International Jazz Trio Shines. Tomas Janzon Trio, often heard at stages all over the world, surprised with fantastic sounds where Tomas' guitar engulfs the listener in pleasurable/exciting enjoyment/endulgence. His soft attack and crisp sound encompasses a large register of pearls of jazz standards and original compositions. The rhythm specialist Essiet Essiet, whose masterful playing gave waves of tones, impressive in both solo and ensemble playing, nicely backed the master. On top of that Will Terrill, the drummer, was lifting it all up with his refined and flexible playing." Åke Jansson, Säffletidningen, nov 28, 2015.
