“I really liked how the band stretched the boundaries of the music; creative arrangement; played with a lot of energy/passion; loved the variety of textures.” Eddie Becton (USA) - Writer, producer, broadcaster and professor of History of Jazz in America at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles

“There is a very marked understanding of the relationship between these three musicians, the discipline, the emotional and the sensory. A pure fusion of genres where harmonies and forms come from contemporary jazz and the melodies evoke the rich Latin American nuances, which make it challenging for the musicians; who successfully present a passionate proposal that invites you to follow them for a great ride from start to finish.” Fernando Rodriguez De Mondesert (Dominican Republic) - Jazz journalist, founder and director of Jazz en Dominicana
