”Leonardo possesses a unique spirit and is a virtuoso extraordinaire on the violin... the spirit of the age inhabits him. By this I mean he is a citizen of the world, a modern man in the truest sense. In fact he shows us how easily we can communicate across cultures if the desire and effort are there.” —Wynton Marsalis

“I admire Leonardo's creativity in crossing the borders and combining tango and jazz. He is a truly international artist. We had great fun playing in Birdland!” —Jim Hall
