His group [Morris Kliphuis] Kapok has its own sound; although it is a trio it sounds orchestral due to the clever new arrangements they play

**** 4 star review
Dagblad van het noorden, 24-4-2014
it will not be directly to everyone's taste, and certainly not by the 'dusty' jazzers, but I like this free wild music, a cross between jazz, rock and improvisation.
Pleasant sounding adventurous music
This may have been the jazz highlight of 2014. Such class
Powerful as an equilateral triangle they shuttle between tight composition and playful improvisation. Accessible and exotic at the same time

Sound innovations in jazz are rare. Kapok, a young Dutch jazz band, has managed to add a surprising new color
De Telegraaf, 15-3-2014
The open-mindedness of Kapok is their great strength. They add new dimensions to the contemporary jazz and accomplishing great things with minimal resources.
The diversity of sounds and sublime collaboration between the three musicians is very worthwhile to attend a concert.
No overproduced piece from three and a half minutes, but a complex compostition with percussion, guitar and horn.

Vaccines are unfortunately not included with the CD, so the kapokkenvirus rücksichtloos becomes master of your body

With an unusual occupation of horn, guitar and percussion, the trio manages to reach a great brightness and directness.

This album rumbles in terms of straightness, innovativeness, playfulness and an a improvasing play in many ways.
BN de Stem, 12-2-2014
Kapok put down a tight which is containing sultry jazz songs, as well as experimental and poppy sides. The guitar shows occasionally a rougher and rocking side and the trumpet parts provide a subtle unity on the album.

Three young, talented and enthusiastic musicians who are doing it just a bit different. That's Kapok.
De Limburger, 07-2-2014
The band is fresh, exciting and adventurous.

This trio is one of the flag bearers for a new extrodinary generation

Kapok defeats all the improvisation borders.
Kapok always seems to be looking for adventure and free music, which gives a very strong album.
