“Ughi seems less concerned with the usual strategies of Free Jazz, although much of what he writes falls in that genre, than with the integration of improvisation and composition in a seamless unit that meshes melodic abstraction with sophisticated writing.” All Music

Signal To Noise (USA) “Drummer Federico Ughi is a different kind of foil”

Free Jazz (Belgium) “Ughi's drumming keeps his unbelievable energetic power”
