‘An exciting talent, Starace is developing a seriously impressive body of work‘ – Bruce Lindsay (All About Jazz)
‘He soars assertively when needed, cajoles and caresses with ‘molto’ lyricism on the ballads and demonstrates unequivocally that it is possible for contemporary jazz to be accessible‘. Lance Liddle (Bebop Spoken Here)
‘Blood & Champagne’ unveils a bandleader possessing a flair for creative interpretation‘. Robbie Gerson (Audaud.com)
‘The title Blood & Champagne, conjuring up as it does life’s intoxicating intensity, is well chosen: this is a heady, exuberant but affecting album‘. Chris Parker
