“Deniss knows what he wants in his music. Colors-textures-sounds-all done with good taste and great skill. Check the atmosphere out…excellent and unique. Fantastic presentation!!”

“In a world where everything is over stated it is wonderful to hear something that draws you in instead of pushes you away. Perfectly Understated!!! Deniss’s playing is heartfelt with so many nuances in his sound. The band has great chemistry and poise. Congratulations”

"There is not a wasted note. So many recordings today sound like practice or a competition. Yours is pure music. Such a pleasure to listen too. "

Jerry Bergonzy 

/ saxophonist, composer and eductor /

 

"… a surprise of a trip. The rhythm is an engine, sounds are like wheels, the interplay is the roads. Deniss and his musicians make the listener the feeling that these sounds were never heard, and, it is the case! A cleverly made rich and effective recording that makes one feels safe on the journey, knowing that the melodies, timbres, attacks, release, timings groove would accompany wisely and with completeness the messages and emotions that the music carries. … uh, so soon... the journey is already finished: it restarts, over and over and it is again the first time we experience it."
