SWANtje steht in der Trio-Tradition des  letzten lebenden Giganten des Goldenen Zeitalters, Sonny Rollins. Der Tenorsound,

die rhythmische Prägnanz und die insgesamt elf durchwegs überzeugenden Eigenkompositionen atmen hörbar den Spirit of Rollins...Swantje Lampert ist ein sehr  eigenständiges, tolles Album geglückt.

(Klaus Nüchtern, Der Falter, 21.10.2020)

Ein Spiel wie ein Trapezakt ohne Netz. Neben den hervorragenden Eigenkompositionen glänzen Lampert​, Hodas und Eberle auch bei "Dolphin Dance", "Little Waltz" und "Falling Grace." Großartig!​

"NOW!" Nr.3 in den Falter-Albumcharts 2020 

Das Trio der Wiener Tenorsaxofonistin ist die Entdeckung des Jahres.          (Der Falter, 52/2020)

Lampert's sound is reminiscent of Sonny Rollins. It is robust, rough hewn, stays mostly in the low and middle registers and embraces the low-end honks and punctuation marks with which the older player splatters his performances. Lampert's improvising style is less thematic than that of Rollins, though not entirely dissimilar, and she interacts much more closely with her colleagues than he does. Her trio is a group of equals, each tuned into the other two. So interlocked are they that is often impossible to tell when a passage is pre-composed or collectively improvised. 
A talented performer who commands attention throughout the album's nigh on sixty minutes, Lampert shows at least as great a gift as a composer. It would be interesting to hear her work on a larger canvas. Meanwhile, this trio album is a debut of which to take serious note.                                                    (All About Jazz, by Chris May, March 3, 2021)
