Andrea Centazzo ICTUS BOX SET has been nominated Best Box Set of 2006 by journalists of the American Jazz Critics Association “... As a whole, the ICTUS Records’ 30th Anniversary Collection is a fascinating compilation with hours of special moments.

It is an important, if not essential collection, featuring an incredible array of talent, and priced as an extraordinary value. Reflecting the tastes and performances of Italian composer and percussionist Andrea Centazzo, the 12- CD boxed set gloriously presents an eclectic and highly individual selection of free improvisation.”
