Carsten Dahl (piano), Jesper Zeuthen (alto sax), Nils Davidsen (bass) & Stefan Pasborg (drums)
"The quartet is the closest Denmark comes to having a Jazz super group. Here, Dahl's music gets the response it requires. [...]. It's in the contrasts between quiet moments and explosive instants that the album finds its greatest strengths. According with the album title, beauty appears kaleidoscopically in a wealth of musical colours."

"Carsten Dahlhas with his orchestra Experience once again made an excellent album. And what strikes you within the first few seconds of Caleidoscopia, is the shocking force and mightiness that meets you. You soon exists in another state of mind, but still a place where something serious is at stake. The album is anything but trivial. It's important because it tells us about all the opportunites and horrors, and does so with technical and artistic ingenuity"

"Complex free jazz improvisations and simple charms-like melodies. (..) Not trivial sentimentality, but a sound that seems to come from - and go directly to - the deepest layers of music consciousness."
