'Hendrik Meurkens has long doubled successfully on vibraphone and the chromatic harmonica. Now, more than 25 years into his recording career as a leader, he stands as arguably the most fluid and fluent jazz harmonica player this side of the great Toots Thielemans...' - JazzTimes May 2016 - Philip Booth

'If harmonica virtuoso Hendrik Meurkens' estimable discography has escaped your attention, this album of straight ahead tunes shows his harmonica to be more than just worthy. The array of vocabulary and technical proficiency he exhibits is truly impressive.....' - Downbeat May 2016 - Kirk Silsbee

'...Harmonicus Rex is one of the purest bop inspired albums I've heard in a long time. There's a love for the music that comes through in every carefully crafted twist and turn. Hendrik Meurkens and his magnificent band have done their homework and prove to the world that "straight ahead" bop fueled
jazz is far from dead and is still open to new ideas. This is a stellar recording not to be missed.'
- Dr. Jazz - Doc Wendell

'Hendrik the crown prince of the instrument....Harmonicus Rex demands our attention because it is a glorious album...' - JazzdaGama - Raul da Gama

New album HARMONICUS REX featuring Dado Moroni, Joe Magnarelli, Jimmy Cobb, Marco Panascia and Anders Bostrom
