Boston's Berklee College of Music has always been a Mecca for young jazz musicians, and small wonder with guitarist-composer Giovanni Moltoni among the faculty. -Josh Rager

"3" is comforting in his quiet grace. -Bob Karlovits
JAZZ WEEKLY Dec. 2008
Giovanni Moltoni has put together a quartet that is big on explorative lyricism and intriguing rhythms. Moltoni mixes his wiry and warm guitar with subdued synth sounds to create a soothing sound that coalesces well with Hopkinsí demur and dusky trumpet. An excellent mix of improvising within the context of creative compositions. -George W. Harris
Jazz Chicaco Dec. 2008 Backed by his usual live group of the last two years, Moltoni pairs his guitar with synth to create an inviting musical landscape. Trumpeter Greg Hopkins is his primary melodic counterpart, while electric bassist Fernando Huergo and drummer Bob Tamagni sparkle as a rhythm section. Not to say Huergo doesn't add to the harmonies with his active and melodic riffing.
Moltoniís guitar swims like rippling waves through the warm synth washes, while Hopkins, Huergo and Tamagni complement the aura with their sensitive approach to making music. Huergo even mirrors his leaderís smooth shimmer on his bass at times. -Brad Walseth
