SELECTED PRESS REVIEWS:

“Marco Sanguinetti has crafted an individual sound, with one foot in the populist jazz piano camp (e.g. Esbjorn Svensson’s e.s.t.., GoGo Penguin) and the other in minimalist New Music (e.g. Nik Bärtsch, Steve Reich). It’s an interesting place to be” – Mark Sullivan, All About Jazz, USA.

“Marco Sanguinetti ha encontrado un sonido, una impronta, un estilo que le son propios, que le pertenecen, que lo identifican. El esqueleto de su música es el jazz, pero un jazz que se torna irreverente, desprejuiciado, rebelde, prepotente, desafiante, arriesgado, permeable” – (Marcelo Morales, El Intruso, ARG.

“Uno de los nombres más interesantes de esa música que se produce en Buenos Aires y que, a la espera de rótulos más precisos, descansa en el término jazz” – Santiago Giordano, Página 12, ARG.

“This crew is all about reinvention; the source material may be familiar while the treatments are anything but” – Geno Thackara, All About Jazz, USA. (BEST RELEASES OF 2016)

“Sanguinetti’s strategy largely involves making subtle creative choices that tease out new dimensions of the music” – Troy Dostert, All About Jazz, USA.

“Cómo Desaparecer Completamente is an ambitious, different, and impressive success and should add to Sanguinetti’s growing appeal” – Karl Ackermann, All About Jazz, USA.

“Argentinian pianist Marco Sanguinetti suggests another approach of interpreting Radiohead songs, more expansive and ambitious one, sometimes even a radical one” – Eyal Hareuveni, Salt Peanuts, Israel.

“Argentinian pianist Marco Sanguinetti lands firmly in the “honorable” category with this double CD” – Geno Thackara, All About Jazz, USA.

“Sanguinetti y sus compañeros de ruta arriesgan y logran un resultado sin flancos débiles” – Eduardo Slusarczuk, Clarin, ARG. (★★★★★)

“Un álbum inteligente, honesto, elaborado al detalle (tanto en su concepción como en términos interpretativos y de posproducción), deliciosamente accesible, con identidad propia e ideas muy claras” – Sergio Piccirilli, El Intruso, ARG.

“Sanguinetti varies the dynamics and more finely articulates the group contribution. It’s a successful approach and an appealing album for many diverse tastes” – Karl Ackermann, All About Jazz, USA. (★★★★★)

“Sanguinetti weaves careful, multi-layered, beautiful and concise mini-suites that sound surprisingly rich and daring, all suggest evocative reflections of a vivid city” – Eyal Hareuveni, All About Jazz, Israel.

“8 represents a pensive outside jazz which redefines the numerous ways of paying attention to sound. With urban soundscape, dramatic rendering, significant structure, and a delicate touch, this album pushes forth toward a new jazz genre” – Mehdi El Mouden, All About Jazz, Morocco.

“8 is one of those albums where one listen is never enough. Each listen gives more and unveils more depth” – Sammy Stein, All About Jazz, UK.

“Listening to Marco Sanguinetti is like stepping through a portal into a world where strange rhythms, counterpoints and chords entwine to create mesmeric music I have ever heard” – Sammy Stein, Something Else, UK.

“Si algo define y diferencia a Marco Sanguinetti respecto del resto de la escena jazzera local, es su conciencia situacionista… Él propone una deriva musical por la psicogeografía porteña actual” – Sebastián Chaves, La Nación, ARG. (★★★★★)

“Quizás el show de la Usina, en febrero pasado, antecediendo a Bad Plus, sea lo más representativo del efecto de “8” en la audiencia. El público que había pagado su entrada para ver al trío norteamericano, no dejaba salir del escenario al grupo de Sanguinetti. Los aplausos del final y los pedidos de bis para un artista que había sido convocado para preceder el show principal, son una verdadera rareza en cualquier sala del mundo” – Fernando Ríos, ArgentJazz, ARG.

“Marco Sanguinetti ha sido el responsable de uno de los mejores y más refrescantes álbumes de esta parte del planeta en la década que nos está tocando transitar” – Marcelo Morales, El Intruso, ARG.
