THE PRESS:

"The album combines eight tracks from two short studio sessions, both demonstrating great musicianship. A combination of standards and originals creates the grounds for a great Hard-Bop album with solos like a string of pearls by all members!" - Frank Büchmann-Møller

"Cigna and Von Spreckelsen created a beautiful, joyful jazz album from beginning to end. Dedication is pure joy of playing…Dedication opens with Cigna's elegant composition Silvertrust, which is a sublime tribute to Horace Silver. The composition beautifully shows how outstanding Cigna is as a composer, but also how strong he is as a guitar player/improviser."- Ivan Rod, GAFFA MAGAZINE
