“ Florencia Gonzalez performance (…) was again one of the most interesting and enjoyable acts, with the right balance between school and street, between north and south, between the past and future of music. ”

LA DIARIA

“…Florencia’s charts have an air you may call third Third-Stream, you may call world music. I’ d call it worth hearing.”

JAZZ INSIDE

“…Woman Dreaming is in most respects a showcase for Gonzalez’ ultra-modern compositions and arrangements, and she doesn’t disappoint. As another flag-bearer in the ranks of such avant-garde writers as Schneider Carla Bley, Hazel Leach, Christina Fuchs and others, Gonzalez has made the sort of remarkable beginning that presages a bright and productive future. ”

ALL ABOUT JAZZ
