Hert Records/ Membran - 2018

#7 best jazz albums on Bandcamp in 2018.

“It’s not an easy task building a chamber jazz framework that allows improvisation to thrive, but Marike van Dijk’s Stereography Project does just that. On her project’s sophomore release, the alto saxophonist adds an extra layer of difficulty by composing for vocalists and for two separate ensembles, which took her to Amsterdam and NYC. That’s a hell of a lot to capture, and yet van Dijk delivers it with the simplicity of a tender love song. A remarkable example of diverse aspirations attaining a cohesive vision.”

“Marike van Dijk’s writing has an organic quality; balanced and seems to find ratios and combinations that are based in nature. I find her music very intuitive and feel that she has great honesty. This record will be just another step in a long career of composing.”
– Gil Goldstein

“Marike van Dijk gives her chamber ensemble a lot of creative latitude within her beautifully crafted compositions on “The Stereography Project.” The compelling results are sure to strengthen her reputation as a bandleader and, more importantly, brighten the lives of all those lucky enough to hear it.”
