"Hans Andersson’s bass playing is strong and beautiful." (OrkesterJournalen)

"Hans Andersson’s playing is still and deeply singing." (Politiken)

"...I have never like here been captured by his elastic soft, firm timbre and ability to find both the fundamental and the unexpected notes. The bassist’s way of making the pauses, the space, to a part of his flow is another considerably impressive ability." (Sydsvenskan)
