Stephen Gauci/Gaucimusic Press Page

“Gauci’s robust tone and workhorse mindset is truthfully original and unparalleled even in a modern scene rife with immense talent. Said tone has graced many a stage and recording with guitarist Nels Cline, drummer Tyshawn Sorey and bassist William Parker, just a few of the esteemed improvisers that have showcased his talent.” – Eric Wendell, The New York City Jazz Record

“To my ears, Stephen Gauci is one of the best tenor saxophonists playing today. Not just in New York (where he resides), but anywhere.” Richard Gilman-Opalsky, Activator Magazine

“The profile of saxophonist Stephen Gauci, already a strikingly original voice with a sizeable discography, has risen meteorically over the last year thanks to his presentation of not one but two ongoing concert series: the Bushwick Improvisers Series and the Happylucky no. 1 Series.” – John Sharpe, The New York City Jazz Record

“What’s interesting about this disc is that it gives Mr. Gauci a chance to really explore his different approaches with no one else to push or lead him in another direction. No matter where Mr. Gauci goes, how far out or inside, he sounds consistently focused. There is quite a bit of marvelous playing going on here.” – Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery Newsletter
