Mark Sullivan
All About Jazz - USA

"Marco Sanguinetti has crafted an individual sound, with one foot in the populist jazz piano camp (e.g. Esbjorn Svensson's e.s.t.., GoGo Penguin) and the other in minimalist New Music (e.g. Nik Bärtsch, Steve Reich). It's an interesting place to be"

Troy Dostert
All About Jazz - USA

"Sanguinetti’s strategy largely
involves making subtle creative choices that tease out new
dimensions of the music"

Sammy Stein

Something Else Reviews - UK

"Listening to Marco Sanguinetti is like stepping through a portal into a world where strange rhythms, counterpoints and chords entwine to create mesmeric music I have ever heard"

Marcelo Morales
El Intruso - ARG

"Marco Sanguinetti ha encontrado un sonido, una impronta, un estilo que le son propios, que le pertenecen, que lo identifican. El esqueleto de su música es el jazz, pero un jazz que se torna irreverente, desprejuiciado, rebelde, prepotente, desafiante, arriesgado, permeable"

Geno Thackara

All About Jazz - USA

"Argentinian pianist Marco Sanguinetti
lands firmly in the “honorable” category with this double CD (Cómo Desaparecer Completamente)"

Eyal Hareuveni

Salt Peanuts - ISR

"Sanguinetti matches beautifully classical, romantic music with the immediacy of jazz improvisations, and unpredictable yet always clever interventions by Migma"

Sebastián Chaves

La Nación - ARG

"Si algo define y diferencia a Marco
Sanguinetti respecto del resto
de la escena jazzera local,
es su conciencia situacionista...
Él propone una deriva musical por la
psicogeografía porteña actual"

Santiago Giordano

Página 12 - ARG

"Uno de los nombres más interesantes de esa música que se produce en Buenos Aires y que, a la espera de rótulos más precisos, descansa en el término jazz"

César Pradines

Clarín - ARG

"De ese continuo proceso de expansión que vive la escena musical porteña,
el pianista y compositor Marco
Sanguinetti es uno de los artistas cuyos proyectos asoman con mayor fuerza”
