“Marco's debut disc Sofia's Heart is post bop with a smidgen of free jazz, (mostly) original tunes with haunting soulfulness and an almost folk-like simplicity.” -Mark Karesman (Jazz Inside Magazine)

“....hauntingly gorgeous new album..” - Robert Sutton (Jazz Corner)

“The attention to details, melody and beauty are the pillars of Marco Pignataro’s debut CD” - Rafael Vega Curry (El Nuevo Dia)
