”Federico Ughi is characteristically splendid, his drums serving as much more than a rhythmic undercurrent...” Cadence Magazine

“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”

Jazz Journal International (UK) “... Ughi is a sensitive drummer...exploiting the full sonic possibilities”

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