PRESS INFO:
- Wayne Shorter wrote: "Andrea Marcelli's music is vibrant and
thought-provoking as today's events. Andrea is such a chameleon.
When I first heard his music, it struck me that he played drums,
clarinet, percussion, keyboards and composed in a variety of styles
that defied classification, moreover, his display of sensitivity and
creative approach to the work produced."

- John Kelman (www.allaboutjazz.com)
....Marcelli's compositions transcend simple melody, transporting the
listener to places known and unknown, eliciting hidden emotions...

- Owen Cordles (Jazz Times): "The themes and instrumental colors seem
made for each other, more like painting than a string of jazz solos."

- Bill Milkowski from the article "Drum Beat" on Jazz Times Magazine:
Italian drummer Marcelli is a natural swinger with a light touch and
an accomplished composer to boot.

- Mario Luzzi (Rockstar): Music thick of colors tenuous
and aggressive following a logic of voyages elegant and intense,
sophisticated and solid, sparkling and deep. Marcelli is a sort of
young Missoni of Jazz, he is able to immerse the compositive texture
in a multitude of colors blended wonderfully each other creating
harmonious drawings. A superb work produced with care and
intelligence. "Made in Italy" emerges not only in the fashion's
field."
