“In one breath, Muri­el Gross­man draws every bit of sere­ni­ty her joy­ful sound has to give, while genera­ting enough inten­si­ty to make it reso­na­te across the bre­adth of the pla­net…“Dave Sum­ner  ENTIRE REVIEW HERE

–>  ‘Devo­ti­on’ review by Brent Siro­ta in Aqua­ri­um­drunkard, Los Ange­les, Feb 2nd 2024
“Some­ti­mes, they are mani­fes­ting the oneness of the uni­ver­se; and some­ti­mes, they are just taking our asses to church. …At a mam­mo­th, mul­ti­co­lo­red nine­ty minu­tes brim­ming with relent­less­ly inven­ti­ve play­ing and irre­sis­ti­ble group dyna­mics, Devo­ti­on encap­su­la­tes ever­ything that is exhilara­ting about Muri­el Grossmann’s alrea­dy sub­stan­ti­al oeu­vre. …Here all the rest­less sonic divina­ti­on that has cha­rac­te­ri­zed much of her ear­lier work is brought back down to earth and chan­n­eled into the unstopp­a­ble groo­ve. It is, after all, the people’s music.” Brent Siro­ta

–>  ‘Devo­ti­on’ review by Leo­nid Aus­kern in Jazz­Quad, Bela­rus, 2023
” … It is curious that in terms of style Muri­el does not seem to offer anything revo­lu­tio­na­ry. But from the alrea­dy fami­li­ar “bricks”, with the talent of an out­stan­ding archi­tect, she assem­bles a buil­ding that is equal­ly har­mo­nious and spec­ta­cu­lar, both in struc­tu­re and in deco­ra­ti­ve ele­ments. An examp­le of this is liter­al­ly any pie­ce on the album…all the mem­bers of the quar­tet are so con­vin­cing that they only con­firm the con­vic­tion for­med during this hour and a half of lis­tening to the album that this is Muri­el Grossman’s best album in recent years Leo­nid Auskern

–> Review of DEVOTION ALL MUSIC Gui­de by Matt Collar
“If someo­ne play­ed you saxo­pho­nist Muri­el Grossmann’s 2023 album Devo­ti­on and said it was a les­ser-known organ and psych-soul-jazz album from the late ’60s, you might just belie­ve them. It’s an evo­ca­ti­ve vibe the Euro­pean instru­men­ta­list has been per­fec­ting for over a deca­de and which she brings to new levels here…” Matt Col­lar

–> Review of DEVOTION in The Decem­ber “Eclec­tic Dis­co­ve­ries No.9″ of Gold­mi­ne Maga­zin 13.12.23
“.. Gross­mann has released her uni­que brand of jazz music into the uni­ver­sal sonic ethers, and has, through her own ves­sel, car­ri­ed the deeply eclec­tic spi­rit of some of the grea­test jazz play­ers of all time … into the new mill­en­ni­um, without reser­ve, without con­for­mi­ty, and without shame.  It would be easy to say that Muri­el Grossmann’s musi­cal hand­print has made way for her to be ack­now­led­ged as one of the grea­test jazz musi­ci­ans of the 21st Cen­tu­ry … DEVOTION … a con­ti­nua­tion of her Uni­ver­sal Code pro­ject, but also what is very pos­si­b­ly one of the grea­test jazz albums of the new mill­en­ni­um, by far. Tone Scott

–> Review of DEVOTION in wswalcottmedicineshow
“.. from my first lis­ten to Devo­ti­on I knew the­re was some­thing about it which real­ly scrat­ched that itch.  What itch “that” was, I wasn’t 100% sure but I knew right away that I was dig­ging it.  … Devo­ti­on feels like Gross­man has mana­ged to take the timing and spa­cing that Gar­cia lear­ned from Col­tra­ne and trans­form it into her own space.  To fur­ther cor­re­la­te the Gar­cia feel to this album, Devo­ti­on almost feels like what Legi­on of Mary would have sound­ed like if Mar­tín Fier­ro was front and cen­ter rather than Jer­ry and Merle.”

–> Review of DEVOTION in Dus­ty Groo­ve Chicago
“… as Gross­man real­ly opens up that mix of modal and spi­ri­tu­al styles she does so well … – in a com­bo that also fea­tures gre­at Ham­mond B3 from Abel Boque­ra, gui­tar from Rado­mir Milo­j­ko­vic, and drums from Uros Sta­men­ko­vic. At times, the organ is used almost in a Lar­ry Young sort of way – but other moments have the instru­ment in moo­dier waves of sound, espe­cial­ly when things get slight­ly exo­tic – and the dou­ble-length set opens up with beau­ti­ful tunes throughout …” Dus­ty Groo­ve, Chicago

–>  Review of UNIVERSAL CODE by Tone Scott, Gold­mi­ne Maga­zin, 18.08.23 
Uni­ver­sal Code is a per­fect modern approach to the essen­ces of Hard-Bop (slight­ly), Post-Bop, Soul Jazz and Modal Jazz collec­tively strewn over a ’new mill­en­ni­um’ musi­cal can­vas. To me, what sets this new album apart …  is the cohe­si­ve­ness across the ent­i­re pro­ject that makes the album bla­tant­ly feel as if it free-flows along as one ent­i­re musi­cal suite with nine various move­ments.  Ano­t­her musi­cal pro­per­ty that adds to the uni­queness of Uni­ver­sal Code, is an almost psy­che­de­lic under­to­ne scat­te­red over various ele­ments of the record… much of the musi­cal accom­p­animent as well as much of Grossmann’s play­ing con­vey the very ele­ments that make albums like Santana’s Abra­xas and Jef­fer­son Airplane’s Sur­rea­listic Pil­low, sub­t­le psy­che­de­lic mas­ter­pie­ces … Moreo­ver, the modern day ico­nic sound signa­tu­re of Muri­el Gross­mann, with wha­te­ver tona­li­ty of saxo­pho­ne she choo­ses to wie­ld, is, in every way, the very rea­son I keep com­ing back, over and over, for each new release.

–>  Review of UNIVERSAL CODE by Tim Cas­par Boeh­ne, HHV Maga­zin Ger­ma­ny, 28.06.23 TRANSLATION HERE
“Uni­ver­sal Code” … sim­ply pro­ves to be a clas­sic voca­bu­la­ry that deri­ves its moder­ni­ty from the fact that the­se melo­dies and har­mo­nies, the­se phra­sings and accents, all natu­ral­ly fall into place and speak direct­ly to the lis­tener. The first three tracks are named “Reso­nance,” “Cla­ri­ty,” and “Inter­con­nec­tion,” pre­cise­ly describ­ing what the music does to you.” Tim Casper Boeh­ne, HHVMAG

–>  Review of BIRTH OF THE MYSTERY in Dus­ty Groo­ve Chicago
“An ear­ly gem from saxo­pho­nist Muri­el Gross­mann – alrea­dy at the sort of apex that would make her one of the key spi­ri­tu­al jazz play­ers in the deca­de to come – crea­ting the sort of music that’s made her one of our favo­ri­te con­tem­pora­ry jazz musi­ci­ans here at Dus­ty Groo­ve! The vibe here is slight­ly dif­fe­rent than some of Grossmann’s more recent mate­ri­al – may­be a bit more open and less modal, but still with this way of buil­ding up a tune in the­se bold blocks of sound!…” Dus­ty Groo­ve, Chicago

Sounds ins­tead of Ani­mals by Lars Fleischmann

–>  Review of UNIVERSAL CODE by Pip­po Kuhzart
“This is the real deal, the jazz that blows you through once, but blows through your clam­my, anxious mind, lets the lis­tener belie­ve that joy and peace are pos­si­ble, uni­ver­sal even. .… This is the real deal. Big stuff, enor­mous, mas­ter­ful, but not serious — it sounds too effort­less for that, too self-evi­dent in its abi­li­ties, real experts know no snob­be­ry, they draw the mas­ses into their won­der­ful extra world whe­re ever­yo­ne can be inclu­ded. See Muri­el Gross­mann and die, folks” 

–>  Review of UNIVERSAL CODE in Dus­ty Groo­ve Chicago
“A fan­tastic record that not only con­ti­nues the gre­at blend of sounds that saxo­pho­nist Muri­el Gross­mann has given us in recent years, but also pushes things for­ward with a stun­ning com­bi­na­ti­on that real­ly knocks things out of the park! … Things are still as spi­ri­tu­al as befo­re, but may­be step back a bit to bring in some soul­ful organ and gui­tar cur­r­ents from a pre­vious genera­ti­on too – at a level that con­ti­nues to make Muri­el one of our favo­ri­te con­tem­pora­ry play­ers in jazz!” Dus­ty Groo­ve, Chicago

–>  ‘Uni­ver­sal Code’ review by Leo­nid Aus­kern in Jazz­Quad, Bela­rus, 2022
” … Muri­el offe­red the lis­teners a pro­gram of nine new com­po­si­ti­ons, per­for­med in her cha­rac­te­ris­tic style, orga­ni­cal­ly com­bi­ning the most modern trends in jazz with a solid back­ground of Coltrane’s ide­as. Perhaps this time this syn­the­sis tur­ned out to be the most impres­si­ve, and the ensem­ble sound in Uni­ver­sal Code see­med to me the most solid and inte­gral. ..hope my brief and sub­jec­ti­ve impres­si­ons will let you dis­co­ver this very talen­ted and crea­ti­ve per­for­mer and com­po­ser.

„Saxo­pho­nist Muri­el Gross­mann is the con­sum­ma­te com­bi­na­ti­on of jazz spi­ri­tua­li­ty, blues and funk. While direc­ting her band to main­tain a modern crea­ti­ve groo­ve, she beck­ons John Coltrane’s spi­rit with a sin­gle note. With equal nods to Col­tra­ne and Al Kooper, Gross­mann is ‘Her Holy Modal High­ness’ … Recor­ded in stu­dio, the ses­si­on impres­ses with the immedi­a­cy of a live per­for­mance. When Col­tra­ne said he had found a way into a new kind of music this is what he was tal­king about. …”

“Saxo­pho­nist Muri­el Gross­mann does­n’t shy away from her Col­tra­ne influ­en­ces. I use influ­ence in the plu­ral, becau­se her music reminds me of both John and Ali­ce Col­tra­ne. Both soni­cal­ly and spi­ri­tual­ly, she has that cer­tain spe­cial extra we cra­ve from our musicians.”

” … the ver­si­ons heard here are more vibrant than their first incar­na­ti­ons. Chalk that up to Gross­man and com­pa­ny working and rewor­king the­se com­po­si­ti­ons in per­for­man­ces. The band’s fami­lia­ri­ty with the mate­ri­al blossoms into a stel­lar recording. ”

“… This album’s got the ama­zing rhyth­mic pul­se of Grossman’s pre­vious records, but also shifts the sound slight­ly too – as in addi­ti­on to the fan­tastic use of gui­tar by Rado­mir Milo­j­ko­vic, the set also fea­tures the­se stron­gly swir­ling organ lines from Llo­renç Bar­ce­lo – in a way that makes us ima­gi­ne what it might sound like if we ever got to hear tho­se lost jam ses­si­ons bet­ween John Col­tra­ne and Lar­ry Young!”

“Muri­el Gross­mann cha­rac­te­ri­ses her Quintet‘s latest album, Rever­ence, as a spi­ri­tu­al-jazz effort — the sum of her devo­ti­on to a lifel­ong explo­ra­ti­on of rhyth­ms, par­ti­cu­lar­ly tho­se of Afri­can ori­gin. The album is Grossmann’s attempt to com­bi­ne what she calls the “reas­su­ring ele­ments of spi­ri­tu­al-jazz” and its antecedents. … ”

–>  Review of REVERENCE in All­Mu­sic gui­de by Thom Jurek
“… That group is appen­ded here by Mal­lorcan Ham­mond B‑3 orga­nist Llo­renç Bar­celó, who­se play­ing crea­tes a wide palet­te of tonal, rhyth­mic, and tex­tu­ral pos­si­bi­li­ties. Grossmann’s eight com­po­si­ti­ons con­ti­nue to evo­ke Col­tra­ne as a touch­stone, but they also embrace the poly­rhyth­mic tra­di­ti­ons of the Afri­can con­ti­nent and fil­ter their dis­co­ve­ries through the band’s inna­te groo­ve con­scious­ness. … 
Here, their inspi­ra­ti­on, com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on, and pro­found explo­ra­ti­on, result in a new water­mark for excel­lence in jazz.” 

–>  Review of Muri­el Gross­mann REVERENCE Vinyl in UK Vibe, by Nick Schlitt­ner, Dec 2019  “… ‘Rever­ence’ is a record that con­sist­ent­ly and respect­ful­ly draws on Afri­ca influ­en­ces to crea­te won­der­ful, memo­r­able, mul­ti-laye­red, ori­gi­nal and exu­berant tunes. … It’s a joy and a pri­vi­le­ge to hear such a won­der­ful album. If Gol­den Rule was per­me­a­ted with the spi­rit of John Col­tra­ne then ‘Rever­ence’ which with its swir­ling organs, gor­ge­ous strings, and Rado­mir Milojkovic’s dri­ving gui­tar is explo­ring the paths first tra­vel­led by Ali­ce Col­tra­ne, Miles electric bands and Lar­ry Young. It is power­ful, insis­tent, crea­ti­ve and joy­ous music ancho­red by an ama­zin­gly tight rhythm sec­tion that groo­ves like hell…”

–>  ‘Rever­ence’ review by Leo­nid Aus­kern in Jazz­Quad, Bela­rus, 2019
” … Her play­ing is still unusual­ly emo­tio­nal and impec­ca­ble in tech­ni­que. … In a word, Rever­ence marks a defi­ni­te turn in the search for this very talen­ted per­for­mer and com­po­ser. …  I think the album will bring a lot of plea­su­re to its listeners.”

“… you get the sen­se that this Medi­ter­ra­ne­an island off the coast of Spain, with its sun splas­hed vis­tas of oce­an and moun­tains, its­elf play­ed a role in influ­en­cing the sound and shape of Muri­el Grossman’s work: the­re is gre­at beau­ty here, and a mix of cul­tu­ral influ­en­ces that, like the island, lend a uni­que feel to the proceedings …”

–>  Review of GOLDEN RULE in All­Mu­sic gui­de by Thom Jurek
“… Gol­den Rule is Grossmann’s tenth album and it’s deep. This is the third date with her cur­rent quar­tet, … The com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ve intui­ti­on of this group is not only empa­thic, it seems tele­ki­ne­tic in its anti­ci­pa­ti­on, colo­ra­ti­on, and arti­cu­la­ti­on of Grossmann’s inspi­red com­po­si­ti­ons infor­med direct­ly by medi­ta­ti­on. …  Gol­den Rule is an 87-minu­te jour­ney; it soot­hes, pro­vo­kes, exhorts, cajo­les, and beck­ons the lis­tener ever deeper into its inner arti­cu­la­ti­ons of peace and tur­bu­lence in Grossmann’s always affir­ma­ti­ve lan­guage that is as pregnant with spi­ri­tu­al mea­ning as it is breath­ta­king sophisti­ca­ti­on.” and Bio­gra­phy in All­Mu­sic gui­de by Thom Jurek

–>  Review in Chi­ca­go-based Dus­ty Groo­ve record store
“Sea­ring work from saxo­pho­nist Muri­el Gross­mann – a play­er who clear­ly draws a lot of inspi­ra­ti­on from late 60s John Col­tra­ne – but who also turns out a record here that’s com­ple­te­ly her own! … – This is deep stuff – not an easy nod to the spi­ri­tu­al sce­ne, but a much richer record – extre­me­ly well-con­cei­ved and exe­cu­t­ed.” Dus­ty Groove

–>  Hono­ura­ble men­ti­on en UK VIBE ! ‘ GOLDEN RULEALBUM OF THE MONTH DEC 2018’
” Muri­el Grossmann’s Quar­tet evo­ke the true beau­ty, sin­ce­ri­ty and joy of Col­tra­ne, whilst suc­cess­ful­ly musi­cal­ly sin­ging out in their own voice, crea­ting new ide­as with a refres­hing ver­ve and skill. “Gol­den Rule” is qui­te sim­ply an incredi­ble album, inven­ti­ve, full of cha­rac­ter, and to my ears, a musi­cal joy to behold.”  Mike Gates, review for UK Vibe


–>  ‘Gol­den Rule’ review by Andrew Jones in Down­beat, USA  Dec 2018, p 64
“Gol­den Rule con­veys medi­ta­ti­ve tran­qui­li­ty and ecsta­tic joy  …  Gross­mann show­ca­ses her abi­li­ty to get the best of a tune melo­di­cal­ly. She plays a solo so lyri­cal every bar feels like a dis­cre­te com­po­si­ti­on … The dyna­mism of its soloists and the quartet’s tele­ki­ne­tic per­for­mance deli­vers the album’s aim: pro­vi­ding a lis­tening expe­ri­ence akin to trans­cen­dence.” 
Andrew Jones

–>  ‘Gol­den Rule’ review by Leo­nid Aus­kern in Jazz­Quad, Bela­rus, 2018
“Tra­ne, espe­cial­ly the late Tra­ne, regar­ded music as a kind of sac­red, spi­ri­tu­al act. Fol­lowing him, Muri­el Gross­man aspi­res to the same spi­ri­tua­li­ty in her music, and — damn it! — she’s gre­at at it! … I con­si­der her new pro­ject GOLDEN RULE to be the crea­ti­ve pin­na­cle of this talen­ted jazz lady and her stron­gest work up to this date.” Leo­nid Auskern
