"Nocz Quartet is, I believe, a brilliant piece of jazz"
Pomoderna, 2014/1 (Łukasz Łoziński)

"The compositions mix muscular, rhythmic free jazz with sonic experimental sonic elements, spiced with Balkan and Klezmer overtones, alternating between tight, orchestrated parts and fiery free improvisations."
All About Jazz, 2013/9 (Eyal Hareuveni)

"Didrik Ingvaldsen is a fabulous trumpeter who sounds like a cross between Don Cherry and Don Ellis.” 
Steve Loewy, All Music Guide
