"Finding a home in the background of the Alligator stable, he (Luca) delivers a rollicking good time in high octane fashion. With a dash of Jon Cleary in his quiver, he knows how to let the good times roll."

“The voice of the young Italian living in Chicago embodies the passion and impertinence of a youth who is eager to prove himself. It takes the codes of standards to make its own pieces, both modern and authentic […] We feel his love for the instrument and his mastery of intensity. Beautiful ornaments accompany the story of his journey, where he tells what he has abandoned to realize his dream, and exposes the questions that entails.“
Marion Braun – BLUESAGAIN (FRANCE) link
“This very impressive debut release is a real treat for fans of piano-based blues (and all blues for that matter). With a sound that is reminiscent of 60's soul artists like Booker T and the MG's and Billy Preston, Luca takes these influences and injects his own style and artistry to create an upbeat and feel-good collection of compositions that will certainly win him new fans and extend his talents even further.”
