Fabrizio Sotti

Driven by the dynamic interplay between Fabrizio Sotti's colorful electric and acoustic guitar and Sam Barsh's bluesy Hammond B-3 organ, the Italian born artist/composer's highly anticipated E1 Music debut Inner Dance beautifully recalls the spirit of the mid-60s albums by his guitar hero Wes Montgomery and organ great Jimmy Smith. As inspired as the recording sounds, it may surprise longtime Sotti fans--and jazz guitar enthusiasts new to his multi-faceted vibe--that he originally conceived his first solo album since 2004's Through My Eyes as a more traditional trio project.

“With an abundance of infectious grooves and catchy hooks, Inner Dance proves to be a listener-friendly affair with Sotti staking claim as a guitarist with whom to be reckoned.” ​- John Barron, All About Jazz

“On [Inner Dance], Sotti shows great talent and technique on both amplified and acoustic guitars.” ​- Larry Taylor, All About Jazz

“On Inner Dance, Sotti does not refashion or rethink jazz. Rather, he creates accessible and cordial contemporary jazz material.” ​- Doug Simpson, Audiophile Audition

“Italian jazz-guitar hero Fabrizio Sotti may have been better known for his hip-hop productions rather than his own music, but that should change with the release ofInner Dance. For my money, Inner Dance definitely belongs in the “good” category.” ​- Greg Barbrick, Blogcritics.org

“I really cannot get this disc out of my CD changer. The Italian-born Sotti has released an album that touches on a number of styles without ever degenerating into a simple game of Name That Influence.” ​- Brian McCoy, The Examiner

“The album is a winner. I've listened to many jazz guitarists. By far, Fabrizio Sotti is the most elegant.” ​- Charles L. Latimer, I Dig Jazz.com

“Inner Dance is a recording which evokes the spirit of the classic “organ trio sound,” while sounding modern.” ​- Martin Kasdan, Jr, Louisville Music News

“A sassy romp strictly made for burning the blue lights in the basement and letting the smoke rise. A wonderful ride throughout.” ​- Chris Spector, Midwest Record

“Inner Dance is compositionally and artistically beyond the ordinary musically. This jewel is audibly contemporary in sound with homage paid to the forefathers in jazz without losing his vision artistic vocabulary.” ​- Rob Young, The Urban Flux
