" Suspended between brilliant writing and illuminating improvisations. "

Salvatore Esposito

" His playing is full of warmth and humanity. "

Bruce Lindsay, AllAboutJazz ezine

" The mood overall is elegiac and largely calm, with clever interplay between the alto and piano. "

Jazzwise Magazine

" Make no mistake, these are musicians at the top of their game and able to incorporate history - not just jazz history, but world history - into an intricate pattern where genre meets genre…The saxophonist is as hot as Rome in summer on alto, and as cool as Alaska in winter on soprano. "
