“‘MASTER MUSICIAN’ IS THE TERM THAT COMES TO MIND WHEN DISCUSSING TRUMPETER, FLUGELHORNIST AND COMPOSER CLAUDIO RODITI.” —Zan Stewart, Star-Ledger
“. . . ON EACH NEW HEARING, I BECOME MORE CONVINCED THAT RODITI HAS FEW PEERS IN THE REALM OF STRAIGHT-AHEAD BLOWING.” ¾ Bob Blumenthal, Boston Phoenix
“. . . A SHARP, VIRTUOSIC SOLOIST OF THE FIRST RANK.” ¾ The Rough Guide to Jazz
“. . . I CAN THINK OF ONLY A HANDFUL OF MODERN TRUMPETERS WHO COMBINE BRAIN AND SOUL, TECHNIQUE AND WISDOM IN A WAY THAT MATCHES RODITI’S.” ¾ Neil Tesser, Chicago Reader
“. . . I HONESTLY BELIEVE THAT, REGARDLESS OF REPUTATION OR NAME REGOGNITION, NO ONE ON THE SCENE TODAY IS PLAYING CONSISTENTLY BETTER TRUMPET THAN RODITI . . .” ¾ Jack Bowers, Cadence
“. . . WHAT
SEPARATES RODITI FROM THE PACK IS THE PERVASIVE MUSICALITY AND
EXPRESSIVE PURPOSE BENEATH ALL THE TECHNIQUE.
Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune
