Here a description of the CD by the great jazz journalist Ted Panken:
"On his ZOHO debut “Almas Antiguas” (“Old Souls”), Boston based saxophonist Marco Pignataro presents his all-star quintet. Six original compositions and five arrangements tell a “story of love”, signifying on elements of his Italian and Puerto Rican bloodlines. The music is evocative and powerful, blending modern jazz with shades of Mediterranean, folk & Latin influences. A remarkably cohesive, artistic recital, devoted to vivid melodies and lyrical beauty, in which all members illuminate the roiling emotions and romantic sensibility that underpin the songs."
