Prodigiously talented multi-instrumentalist, Ernesto Cervini has written and arranged all of the material on this exceptional debut CD. (Here is) is a symbiotic musical landscape that purposefully features each talented member of the quartet. Cervini - who shines on the drums - is a composer of profound complexity and emotion. Here" is certainly one of the most interesting jazz recordings of 2007, and Cervini is one of our most intriguing emerging young artists. Lesley Mitchell-Clarke - The Wholenote Magazine
Full of energy, Ernesto Cervini pushes the entire band with razor- sharp cymbal work and light but incisive drums. His energy is electrifying, but he does not overpower the proceedings, managing to be extremely tight without being loud.
