..Brazilian rhythms are front and center in this impressive performance by the Italian trumpeter Gabriel Oscar Rosati, who must have one of the most melodic temperaments in the business. ...This is brass playing of rare excellence. (Jazz Now _ March 2002)
..Mr. Rosati, the band-leader, performed nightly with the trumpet and vocals and superbly played jazz, latin, brazilian and pop music. He was always a true professional, reacted to the comfort of all Japanese and foreign guests, and was well received by all. Many guests returned several times to hear the group’s performance (John R.Rolfs _ Osaka Ritz Carlton General Manager 1997)
..They continuously created excitement throughout the evening. Offering good improvisations and support to the overall complexity and intricacy of their Latin American sounds. Once he played a slow melody with energetic accompaniment. Their results were wonderful!..His group is tight. If you get a chance to see these incredible musicians jump on it. (Vegas Music _ April 1996)
...It's colorful, exciting, and melodic. It will make you want to jump out of your seat and DANCE!!.. (Show de Las Vegas magazine _ 1995)
...Gabriel plays a hauntingly beautiful trumpet. It isn't amplified but somehow there seems to be an echo to the sound, as if he was playing in a big hall or the bull fight coliseum instead of a packed restaurant. The projection is good. The notes are clear and precise... (California Jazz Now Magazine _ March 1993)
