-Some comments from the press about the Cuarterto Europa album-

"Cuarteto Europa, a new benchmark for continental Jazz." "Its members do not know it, but their acts are already having direct consequences in the European jazz school" "Justice is self-explanatory, since the group brings together four of the most powerful jazz players and representative of that jazz feeling that many of we recognize, the European Jazz, crossing camerísticos and folkloric languages with the American jazz acquis, always from their respective contemporary sensibilities. "


 "Justice is self-explanatory, because the group brings together four of the most powerful jazz players and representative of that jazz feeling that many of us recognize, European Jazz, crossing chamber music and folkloric languages with the American jazz heritage, always from their respective contemporary sensibilities. "

SCHERZO – Pablo Sanz


-Soon all the information in English-


"El gallego Baldo Martínez......,que lleva a cabo sus actividades en su mayor parte en casa, es una lástima que casi todo deba resolverse dentro de los muros españoles, siendo músico de extremo interés como este último y hermoso CD reconfirma".

MÚSICA JAZZ - Alberto Bazzurro
(ITALIA)


"Música de libre expresión en forma y fondo, pausada y bien temperada desde el equilibrio instrumental que busca y alcanza la belleza sin provocación, con naturalidad y sin esfuerzo aparente con Baldo Martínez dirigiendo el timón desde el fondo del cuarteto para hacer brillar en sus interactuaciones a Dominique Pifarély y Samuel Blaser, y situando a Ramón López como preciso metrónomo." 

"Nueve capítulos de un libro sonoro sin principio ni fin establecidos, donde el escuchante diseña su propio guion para ordenar los capítulos según conveniencia o gusto"

TOMAJAZZ – Enrique Farelo 

 

 

"De la libre improvisación a la música de cámara y popular europea- como de los discursos, cimenta los fundamentos de un disco relevante, capaz de tejer varias tramas en un mismo tema."

 "Antes que caer en la dispersión, el álbum resulta modélico en sus espacios de encuentro y expansión, fijando, de paso, una de las cimas jazzísticas de la temporada nacional."
