http://hendrikmeurkens.com/"...over the span of over two decades, Hendrik Meurkens (who also doubles on vibraphone) has become the de facto chromatic harmonica heir to Thielemans..." Doug Simpson, Audiophile Audition
"Harmonica maestro Hendrik Meurkens and bassist Gabriel Espinosa share top billing, but the music seems to mark this as a Meurkens date. While each man contributes four songs to the program, Meurkens' harmonica is the guiding voice...Celebrando is worth savoring for the music." All About Jazz
Hendrik's next CD 'Harmonicus Rex' featuring Jimmy Cobb will be released in the fall. After several Brazilian Jazz albums here comes an all straight ahead session featuring Joe Magnarelli - trumpet, Anders Bostrom - alto flute, Dado Moroni - piano, Marco Panascia - bass, and Jimmy Cobb. I did several tours with Jimmy and he never fails to amaze. One has to experience his ride cymbal, there is no equal. Amen!
