Kurt Monten

A revelation!
‘Weg’ is a beautiful minimalistic album that brings you in a melancholic and contemplative atmosphere. Each number is a pearl in which marvellous piano playing is combined with fragile singing and sweet arrangements for brass players and strings. It reminds me of Goldmund, Thomas Feiner and Wim Mertens. I am already looking forward to the next album of Jan Swerts!

Pierre Reniers

The beauty of a few notes
This album creates a very calm, melancholic atmosphere which makes you silent and reflective. The music is a fascinating mix of Bon Iver, Anthony and the Johnsons and Wim Mertens.

I enjoyed every song, even the one that lasts over 20 (!) minutes.

Great stuff for fans of minimal, filmic piano music.
