“Francesco is an up and coming young jazz guitarist with his own unique ideas which observes traditional as well as modern influences of jazz. His musicianship would equal some of the best musicians in New York. Being on stage with him provides the freedom one needs as an improviser. He is definitely one of the best European musicians to work with, talented and humble.” (Alex Sipiagin)
“Francesco achieved a complex and contemporary melodic language, a rich harmonic aspect filtered by pianists, high level composing and performing skills.” (Umberto Fiorentino)
