“It does not happen very often that a young jazz musician presents himself on his debut album with such musical maturity the way that guitarist Marzio Scholten does on his ‘Motherland'... As a soloist he is a strikingly strong ‘storyteller’ with a subtle feeling for melody... This is serious young jazz of today; sensitive, beautiful and intense...” (Bert Jansma)

“... And now, here is his debut ‘Motherland. A portfolio or showcase on which Marzio Scholten presents to us his skills, which are very impressive... His playing is melodic, subtle and fresh, as well as angular and to the point... His work has an open character and invites the listener to relate to the music... Extremely well done. A debut one could only dream about.” (Frank Huser/JazzFlits)
