Best Debut Album 2018 by All About Jazz - K.Ackermann on International Critic Pool "El Intruso"
“Giuseppe Doronzo is without a doubt one of the most exciting fresh voices in the Dutch jazz and improscene.
It is a plate that breathes concentration…effortlessly gets you in a trance” (Mischa Andriessen, Jazz&Mo Belgian Magazine)
"Doronzo brings out the distinctive qualities of the baritone from the moody, to the raspy to the visceral. It's been said that the improvised solo is the highest form of personal expression and Doronzo does a first-rate job of articulating his vision." (K.Ackermann, 4**** All About Jazz)
“For an instrument like the baritone, which in jazz we
have learned to appreciate for its rough tones, Doronzo
blends beautifully the cards, taking advantage of the
mantric timbres and that benevolent channel of culture,
literature and music that should build the psychology of
the music of the future.” (Percorsi Musicali, Ettore
“Impressive technique with poetry and emotion.”
(Enola Jazz Magazine)
Goya is an Urdu word that describes a state of mind between reality and imagination.
Imagined, real… What is reality? Is it my fingers pressing into a piece of clay or the clay pushing them
These pieces are stories shared. That I lived directly or indirectly; that I have been part of, consciously or unconsciously. I feel like the channel, the medium that uncovers them. “I do not speak, I am
spoken”, as Carmelo Bene would say.
The album "GOYA" for baritone sax solo is released on Giuseppe Doronzo's record label, Tora Records.
