"DOUCHE BAG....deliciously dangerous and defiantly direct, you slice through genre bullshit with a razor-honed point of lyricism. You're on the edge, thank god! We need many, many more douche-bag destroyers."
"Let me tell ya...this guy can work wonders with his kazoo..."
getting on stage at the World Cafe Live @ The Queen
"Every time Jacopo gets on stage I'm like: Oh Gosh, where are we going now...?"
after a show at The Utah Saloon, San Francisco
"Jacopo's songs are inspiring journeys into a kaleidoskope of worlds and emotions"
Last Stop Records
"Fella, this is Jacopo, he plays the kazoo like if there was no tomorrow..."
WCL open mic night, Philadelphia
"Jacopo, TORN IN THE USA sounds fantastic: big, full and lively! Each song is unique and so rich of sparkle and elan!!. I'm always impressed with the range you have in your musical talents as well as the songwriting"
Dandeline, sound engineer
"It's nearly impossible to resist this catchy little number. Jacopo's accent and unique combination of referenced stylistic elements make his sound very distinctive. I found myself singing along on first listen!"
— TAXI, music reviews, on Douche Bag
"Inspired by European cafe rock, Tropicalia and global rhythms, MAI COME ORA shows a wide variety of styles and directions, encapsulated as a satisfying whole. Treading a path between the baroque pop of Lucio Battisti and the frenetic rhythms of Manu Chao, Jacopo manages to charm with infectious songs sung in both Italian and English and unique instrumentation including mandolins, hand percussion, and some rather masterful kazoo playing! Nice!"
