  • 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.“
