<<… The core trio (Luigi Martinale, p; Yves Rossignol, ac b; Paolo Franciscone, d.) swings pleasantly and Demo waxes both romantic on the ballads and more robustly on the swinging set pieces… His Jazz scat is as competent as any other I’ve heard and for those interested in an international take on straight ahead Jazz vocals, this disc might be worth checking out.>>
