“A wonderful new voice on the violin – - – very refreshing!” -Chick Corea
“Mads has the amazing talent and skills that few young musicians can match. His music is both beautiful and refreshing exhibiting his superb mastery of the modern American Jazz music that is rarely seen among his peers.”
“Mads Tolling is the most exciting musician I have come across in the past ten years. This recording represents some of the most creative music making out there.”
“Mr. Tolling is a virtuoso who doesn’t abandon his listeners. “Speed Of Light”, with sophistication and maturity doesn’t abandon accessibility. This is fascinating, hooky and satisfying music and Mads takes it beyond the academy and back to the ear.”
