"Outstanding - and the thing, besides Dee Dee Bridgewater I will remember the most from the concert- was Steen Hansen's trombonesolo in 'Polka Dots And Moonbeams'. How many in Denmark realizes, what a musician we have in him? When I listen to his play, I often think, that there is no other tromboneplayer in the whole world, I'd rather hear."

-Boris Rabinowitsch (review in "Politiken" July 10th 2006)

"If he lived in Canada, he would defenitly be in my band"
