Edoardo Ricci & Thollem Mcdonas
|"The sublimation of the two instrumental characters is almost perfect, making for a vivid conversation that often borders on the row, but always with reciprocal patience and an ongoing will to listen carefully to what the other has to say."
- Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes
"...very intense and sensitive moments, where an optimum musical celebration of the moment is reached...this album is of great 'actuality'."
- Frans de Waard Vital Weekly
"... flames and spasms, serenades and slaps. A rough and brilliant piano, sometimes rarefied, sometimes massive and an insidious, and dense saxophone but also furious and enjoyable are the protagonists of this strange meeting in S. Giuseppe, Nippozano, Florence, Toscany."
- Francesca Ognibene
"...an hour of intense improvisation by two artists of immense creativity and thrilling brilliant technical virtuosity."
-Eduardo Chagas, Jazz e Arredores
"In the duo with Mcdonas on Sono Contento..., Ricci’s sluicing flutter-tongue alto saxophone elaborations and other advanced techniques fit firmly into a sort of Universalist Free Music." -Ken Waxman, Jazzword
"Four lively improvisations on the same theme."
-J. Worley Aiding & Abetting
