What they say about me

“Med elegans och kansla for melodik slingran kvintetten fram pa upptrampade stigar i samlad tropp dar i stort sett alla sticker ut precis lagom myticket” Leif Carlsson – Lira Magazine – Postcard from Gamla Stan (SW 2022)

With elegance and a knack for melody, the quintet winds its way along well-trodden paths in an assembled troupe where virtually everyone stands out just the right amountLeif Carlsson – Lira Magazine – Postcard from Gamla Stan (SW 2022)

“Ljudet i det förhållandevis lilla rummet är anmärkningsvärt förstklassigt, mixas i exakt rätt inställd volym. Återger vad som utförs på varje instrument, instrument som fint urskiljs och får generöst med utrymme. ”Projektledaren” inleder med filtklubbor, har genomgående en eftertänksam approach. Styr skeendet beslutsamt genom att utvinna ett sound som attraherar. Förstod jag rätt är merparten låtar signerade henne, resterande skrivna av Linus Lindblom och Anna Lundqvist. Musiken hämtar näring från europeiskt njutbara klanger, skandinavisk folkmusik á la Nils Lindberg och några vitala klickar bebop. Tyckte mycket om kompositionerna vilka infriar mina förhoppningar” Kultur Bloggen Mats Hallberg – Postcard from Gamla Stan (Goteborg 2021) 

 

Nei brani eseguiti tutti gli strumenti sono finemente distinti e hanno il proprio spazio. La leader ha un approccio riflessivo in tutto, conduce in modo deciso con un suono attraente. La musica si nutre di piacevoli suoni europei, di musica popolare scandinava alla Nils Lindberg e di alcuni scatti vitali del bebop. Le composizioni soddisfano le mie speranzeKultur Bloggen Mats Hallberg . Postcard from Gamla Stan (Goteborg 2021) 

“…Un mood ammantante e rarefatto, impressionista, dalle sublimi colorazioni nordiche, dal sound pervasivo, intriso d’eleganza. Questi sono i tratti distintivi di Postcard from Gamla Stan, la nuova creatura discografica partorita dalla sensibilità della talentuosa batterista jazz, compositrice e arrangiatrice Cecilia Sanchietti…”  MUSICA E STRUMENTI – Stefano Dentice POSTCARD FROM GAMLA STAN(2022)

“Hi-Hats and High Spirit from Drummer Cecilia Sanchietti – Cecilia Sanchietti has a sweet, light, airy touch on drums, but don’t mistake that for meekness. She rolls and shimmers, painting with a full palette of colors on a multitude of recordings and performances. she is an explorer of sound and an advocate for promoting and encouraging more female artists in the jazz realm” DEBBIE BURKE – Jazz author 2019 (USA)

“Yes, this is a drummer’s recording, but Cecilia’s drumming and musical acumen serve as the conduits to deep emotion being conveyed.  It’s all there; power, sensitivity, creativity, color, the shimmering sides of dynamic control, the dialogue that can only be had when musicians freely release themselves and turn over their hearts and souls to the deeper expression happening at that precise moment”.
RONALD SAVAGE (Berklee College of Boston – “La terza via” line notes – 2018)

“A drummer that knows how to give everyone some and makes this feel like a piano trio date, this is how it is after hours when the players are really playing for themselves. Real music for real ears, there’s not a false note in the bunch from these pros and a good time is had by all”. (Chris Spector  – Midwest Record 2018)   

“LA TERZA VIA”Las pistas son originales, interpretando un jazz de sonido moderno, con pasajes funky, pop y baladas, donde se tuvo particular énfasis en las composiciones rítmicas. Un proyecto con sabor a Cool Jazz tradicional y fusionado con otros estilos musicales, de profundo compromiso con la interacción e improvisación. Recomendado Actual Jazz. Uruguay 2018

“There are an increasing number of women playing drums and Italy’s Cecilia Sanchietti is among the best, also composing music and leading her band on Postcard From Gamla Stan…The music is crisp and engaging, modern jazz led from Sanchietti’ s chair”.

O’S PLACE JAZZ MAGAZINE – Postcard from Gamla Stan (USA 2022)

“…Each song is a trek in the hills, with different panoramas and vistas after going up and down the trails. Impressive paths…“.

George Wharris  – Jazz Weekly magazine – Postcard from Gamla Stan (USA 2022)

“Five stars! Cecilia’s drumming and compositional style is first rate and the group she assembled, including the above-mentioned Ms. Lundqvist, as well as Simon Westman (acoustic piano), Linus Lindblom (sax, clarinet) and Josef Kallerdahl (double bass) more than lives up to the challenge of performing the music on this noteworthy album of modern, mainly acoustic jazz” Roots Music Report  – Robert Silverstein (USA)- Postcard from Gamla Stan (2022)

“Italian drummer Cecilia Sanchietti is an elegant musician and thoughtful composer. Both attributes are amply demonstrated on her second release as a leader La Terza Via … Sanchietti has proven herself a unique and versatile artist. Her compositions are engaging, her drumming gracefully nimble and her rapport with her band fluid”. ATTARIAN All about Jazz – Chicago – 2018

“…Colpisce, in particolare, la cura discreta – eppure evidente – con la quale la leader tiene divista l’insieme, garantendo in modo semplice e naturale la trasmissione di contenuti niente affatto scontati, ricchi di sfumature e influenze, aperti e raffinati…Una bella sorpresa, per un disco espressamente dedicato al coraggio, da parte di una musicista che dimostra di averne, insieme alle idee. Da ascoltare” (Sandro Cerini – Musica Jazz – Giugno 2018)

“…Questo lavoro è un gioiellino che nel jazz moderno sta perfettamente a suo agio, unendo una compiutezza nitida ed organica ad una morbidezza fluida e calda ed accompagnandovi nell’ascolto come potrebbe fare un vino di quelli che non puntano alle stelle dorate dei premi ma a farsi bere, a raccontare nei sorsi, ad avvicinare chi sa goderseli. E se vi è venuto in mente il filo per far collane con le perle va benissimo così…” 
Pierluigi Zanzi (MUSIC TNT – 2018)

…Una splendida intuizione progettuale e artistica, perché dietro c’è un’idea e, cosa ancor più importante, un sentimento aperto: un’espressione di umanità dove la libertà del jazz attrae i legami sociali e accoglie le diverse identità. “Circle Time” è intriso di un jazz antropologico che sogna un nuovo umanesimo cosmopolita e qui, almeno musicalmente, utopicamente integrato” (Dario Zigiotto – Line notes “Circle Time” 2015)

“…The third side of the coin” è un album debordante di genuinità e generosità, che gravita attorno al contemporary jazz, dove vi è spazio in abbondanza per pause e respiri…” Stefano Dentice (Roma in Jazz – 2018)
