Google Translate: ... the two created these fragile and delicate moments, rich in musicality and feeling, one on violin and viola, the other on piano and to the vibraphone. They are engaging atmospheres in which the accent moves on pathos, communication, beyond the desecrating or angry moments of the free with which the two in the past have had to do. Among the most beautiful moments Below Zero, with the pizzicato on Hwang's violin that meets the vibraphone, is a very special atmosphere that the two manage to create in improvisation. Overall it is an incision without moments of emptiness, which involves the listener from beginning to end, of two musicians in a state of grace who had something real to say to each other and made it public. - Vittori LoConte,   Read Full Review

Wonderfully spontaneous unpredictable creativity Karl Berger-Jason Kao Hwang – CONJURE:  The magic is with these two on their all-original wonderfully spontaneous and unpredictable recording (to be released 1 October, 2019)… Karl’s piano/vibes and Jason’s violin/viola will summon spirits from your inner depths and take you on a journey like you’ve never been on before. - Rotcod Zzaj, Contemporary Fusion Reviews  Read Full Review

Conjure..features eight improvised pieces that show their constantly openness to the moment... The opener, “Prophecy”, confirms that their voices make sense together. Berger launches the journey with a low-toned piano pedal, angular musings, and some caustic chordal movements. For its part, Hwang’s melodic narrative is as dramatic as it should be, and we can almost sense the tears suggested by his violin cries. - Felipe Freitas, Jazz Trails  Read Full Review

Listening to Hwang coax amazing sounds by plucking his strings on “Vanishing Roots” or Berger’s unpredictable piano chords and vibraphone notes may be unlike anything you’ve heard from a duo. - Jim Hines,   Read Full Review

Together, these two talented instrumentalists color outside the lines with an audacity and freedom that startles the senses. - Dee Dee McNeil, jazz journalist,  Read Full Review

While there is solid justification for the genre police to tag this music as free jazz or pure improvisation, that act of classification would ultimately be a waste of time...This duo typically thrives on uncertainty while exploring a variety of textural subtleties. - by Dan Bilawsky,  Jazz Times  Read Full Review

***** Liltingly lyrical, the duo’s compositions continue to impress, as does their impeccable musicality... Not only are the performances excellent, but also the messages within them are profound... Multi awarded and critically acclaimed, this recorded experience further substantiates the importance of these two exceptional musicians. Highly recommended. Grady Harp,  Read Full Review

These are two practiced masters at free improvisation. I am confident that many listeners will find them as intriguing and accomplished as I do.   - Michael Ullman,   Read Full Review

The two artists seem  perfectly at ease with each others directional inclinations and they add some unexpected twists and turns to the path that they spontaneously create, leading the music in a direction that is unpredictable to both the listener or the musicians... My favorites are "Silhouettes" that features Berger on a hollow, hauntingly echoing vibraphone line that sets the theme of being caught in a phantasmagorical loop, as Kwang plays his piercing violin like a captured entity, mesmerized by the repeating sounds. Caught like a silhouette entranced by  Berger's drone. There is a desperation and lack of resolution to this music that is just captivating and at the same time eerily spooky. - Ralph A.Miriello   Read Full Review
