What the press says

“ Peloton refuses to be pinned down by genre.” “..create their own sound: a groovy space-age jazz with the simultaneously futuristic and anachronistic Moog taking a crucial role in the band's architecture of sound. What matters is also that the band not only manages to combine the different sounds into a whole but also slides convincingly between moods, thus being able to shift from the energetic groove and soaring trumpet of "Nozal" to the ethereal, low-key ballad "Munoz."

Normally, a title like Selected Recordings would be reserved for a retrospective album that gathers the best of an artist into a convenient package. This album is also a "best of" but it is of a different sort. Peloton are at the beginning stages of their career yet they're already making the sounds that define them as artists. Thus, this is an album that both looks back and ahead. If Selected Recordings is a sign of things to come then there is reason to be thrilled about the future.”   Jakob Baekgaard, All About Jazz - New York "Selected Recordings" barely sounds like free improvisation, but like compositions with well thought-out and sensitive arrangements. Peloton do not try to extend the sedate borders, but they freely move in the tension field of the jazz of the past 50 years.”” With Peloton Petter Vågan plays the guitar. Besides, he is reserved enormously and shows an astonishing feel for atmosphere and sound variety. Also in his solo works a musician steps with him by days who searches the sounds "in his instrument.” “it is also the precise choice which makes this album so exceedingly stimulating.
