"Bassist Boris Schmidt provided a rock solid footing upon which the others could build, but one loosened with rhythmic restlessness and spontaneous flourishes, the tone ever rich and full. Schmidt sashayed effortlessly from backdrop to foreground. Taking his turn in a strikingly inventive stream of instrumental obbligati in Maurizio Cazzati’s Ciaccona Op.22 No.14, Schmidt astonished with his agility and dexterity, while in ‘Tarantella napolitana, Tono hypodorico’ he indulged his jazz groove. "
Review of l'Arpeggiata concert, Wigmore Hall, London, 11/23/2013
“With “Now” he demonstrates technical skills, but also a certain sensitivity that makes the first album under his own name, with which he emerges from the shadows, nothing less than a small gem. [...]
a refined, delicate and often dreamy jazz sound that is characterized by structured nuance and refinement.”
