Massimo Sammi

- “Massimo Sammi is a really exciting musician. The thing I like about Massimo is that he has a lot of chops but he never uses them for their own sake. The music for him always comes first.” - Charlie Banacos

- “Massimo's composition “Ice Cream and Tears, please”, is the type of piece that is written too seldom these days. It possesses a unique melody with unpredictable pitches and rhythms that can be exact or ambiguous. This composition reflects fog, eternity and flashback. It is a classic.” - Ran Blake

”He is a force to be reckoned with - both as a player and as a composer of merit.” - Dave Wayne -

“Sammi is a particularly adept technician whether swinging on electric guitar or accompanying (...) Sammi's chops shift from thoughtful, warm comps to open soloing.” - Mark F. Turner - All About Jazz USA

“In First Day you can fully breath the passion for jazz and the praiseworthy goal to innovate its musical language with great respect for history and an equal tension towards new openings (...) First Day shines in its own light and reveals a promising and highly creative musician.” - Vincenzo Roggero - All About Jazz Italy

“Massimo Sammi’s debut album First Day proves to be a melting pot of inventive melodic schemes and thick entanglements that stretch jazz music’s limits.” - Susan Frances - JazzTimes
