“Striking is Geijtenbeeks thought through sound-spectrum and lyricism. The well balanced compositions give his melody’s enough space to breathe and develop and there’s a lot of attention to detail. Musical story’s in the middle and upper range are harmonically united with creative bass-lines or changed into a groove with ease. – Jazzenzo

“Today’s Story’ is a delightful jazz record. Honest too, by which I mean that it’s unadorned, open-hearted, confident, freely and most of all playful. The music is tight and funky, but also lively and light-footed and carefully dosed in the ballads, like ‘Lifetime’ and ‘Traveling Light’, which have an almost cinematic character” – Jazzflits
