Album previews


“Emanuele Cisi has it all. Sound, Time and a great imagination. He has his own voice that inspires me” – Jerry Bergonzi


“When I first heard him, his big Usound almost knocked me over. I couldn’t believe it. But then the things he was playing fully touched the deepest grotto of my heart. He gives his ideas life and breath – taking chances – and not playing it safe. Emanuele exists and plays with one foot in the present and the other in the future.” – Benny Golson


“Emanuele Cisi plays with drive and sensitivity and is a lyrical musician with a strong personality. As a saxophonist and composer he is one of the most personal voices on the European jazz scene today.” – Joe Lovano


“Emanuele Cisi has one of the most beautiful and lyrical saxophone sounds in the world.” – Tim Price


“Concept, communication, sensitivity, character, lyricism, tone, swing, colors, textures . . . Emanuele has these. Is it the light? The food? Or the seas surrounding three sides? . . . Italy is a fertile ground for the creative impulse. He honors the tradition.” – Charles Lloyd
