ALL ABOUT JAZZ : Listening to The Angry St. Bernard by musician and composer Giulia Barba, it is surprising to learn that it is her debut recording. A baritone saxophonist (maybe the Italian equivalent to Claire Daly), she displays a jazz veteran's maturity in both her compositions and playing. (Mark Corroto, All About Jazz)

“With reforms like The Angry St. Bernard there is no need for a revolution. The avant-garde on this record means no break-up with the tradition, but an ingenious processing of it” (5 stars review, Het Parool, NL).
