"2018 has been a year of many outstanding and surprising new records. One worth special notice is First Lines by Swedish trumpeter Erik Palmberg and his quartet. Featuring mostly original compositions, the music is fresh and crisp yet steeped in jazz tradition."

"DN gratulerar: Erik Palmberg, jazztrumpetare.

Luftig, lyrisk jazz som låter som om den var inspelad på jazzens storhetstid på 50 talet"

- Hans Kronbrink, DN

"På skivan finns ytterligare två standardlåtar, Dizzie Gillespies Con Alma och Bill Evans-balladen Turn out the Stars, vilka ger rika prov på Palmbergs lyriska kvalitéer. 

Kompositionen Natural Rhythm gör skäl för sin titel med ett flödigt spel ifrån hela gruppen, vilket i den konventionella inramningen får extra pregnans. Pianisten Anton Dromberg matchar Palmbergs luftiga, eftertänksamma spelstil väl i det avslutande duonumret Sortie.

Erik Palmbergs skivdebut känns vältajmad "

- Album review, Ulf Thelander, Orkesterjournalen

"I Remember You" 

"...a musician that knows how to treat a standard, adding a new approach, a fresh air but keeping the original meaning of the song. Nice instrumentation with Fender Rhodes too."

"This playlist celebrates the melding of these genres into new forms. From Fela Kuti’s afrobeat, to the latin-jazz-rock of Santana, to Tom Waits’s character-driven songs and on to Swedish jazz trumpeter Erik Palmberg’s interpretations of the art. Music is the universal language. These tunes confirm that statement."
