On Filomena Campus & Jester of Jazz:
“On stage Campus is like a shaman of music, enchanting the audience with her deeply expressive voice and her magnetic presence” ANSA Italian Press Agency London
“this singular Sard gleefully and expertly builds a multilingual set of beautifully stylish original songs…hers is the most international of musics so she’s often gigging abroad; catch her when you can“ Roger Thomas, JAZZUK
“Campus is a highly musical singer” Sebastian Scotney
‘Here the elegance reigns supreme, next to a philological research well tied with the evolution of contemporary music and original jazz underlined by the chameleon-like voice Filomena Campus. (…) The prosody of Filomena Campus is natural and her voice is able to combine musical styles and genres with a disarming ease. Ayroldi, MUSICA JAZZ
“Excellent vocalist, while performing with humour and incredible swing she can touch the chords of your soul with a voice that knows the accents of the blues” Walter Porcedda, La Nuova
On Paolo Fresu:
“Superb” the Independent
“wonderfully atmospheric (…) and Fresu is a gentle, lyrical player with the most gorgeous tone” The Observer
“Sardinian trumpeter Paolo Fresu has been a key figure in Italian jazz since the late 80s as a Miles Davis-influenced artist who makes a lyrical music with sharp turns, and an imaginative interpreter of his culture’s own traditions” John Fordham, The Guardian
