– Wayne Shorter wrote: „Andrea Marcelli’s music is vibrant and
thought-provoking as today’s events. Andrea is such a chameleon.
When I first heard his music, it struck me that he played drums,
clarinet, percussion, keyboards and composed in a variety of styles
that defied classification, moreover, his display of sensitivity and
creative approach to the work produced.“
