“Henriques played tenor and soprano sax on this special album release concert and he certainly proved there is something awesome about his playing and his new music. I'd vote him to be captain anytime.” ~Jaclyn Guillou

"Anyone interested in serious jazz has to catch the Ben Henriques quartet"


"These five musicians have found a way to interact that is seldom found in modern music. The Responsibility Club will be on very heavy rotation in my playlist for some time to come and I highly recommend it to anyone that appreciates jazz music at its very finest."

Musique-dans-mes-rêves Wow, là ça c'est toute une aventure musicale! J'me sens comme si j'écoutais les Cousteau du beat. Même dans la mer arctique, ils n'ont pas froid aux yeux.

Ou après le rave, le « coming-down ». Ou après… ouain, j'pense que c'est clair.
