Press about Patches of Sky

(…) certainly a very bright spot on today’s map of jazz in Europe.”(…) “just as there are few men who sing well in jazz, those who do it well, do not always go hand in hand with good material. “Patches of sky” has both. And even the third one, i.e. musicians perfectly in tune with it.’

JazzSoul PL (full review (Polish)

‘Henk Kraaijeveld has been compared to jazz singers Mark Murphy and Kurt Elling. His new album Patches of sky confirms he’s in the same league as those two, but he’s also proven himself to be a singer in his own right.”

Lots of great ideas, and ones that keep with the jazz tradition yet push forward. Look for this guy!’
