Jorge Sylvester / Press

“Jorge Sylvester ACE Collective Brucknerhaus Linz, December 6, 2010 ****** Those who were expecting Calypso-singing Harry Belafonte clones must have been disappointed. The pieces composed by the Panamanian saxophonist use the rhythmic tradition as a basis for extended forays into the world of the contemporary. ”

“If Ornette Coleman had be born and reared in Nassau, his music would have sounded like this. Sylvester has a large imagination and he spreads it over the shifting rhythms established by drummer Bobby Sanabria and bassist Donald Nicks.”

“Jorge's composer's imagination is the matchless structural coherence of his improvisational work". ”

Violinist, Composer Ramsey Ameen - 12/2005 TRIBES Magazine

“Jorge Sylvester's distinctive alto saxophone sound is imbued with the volatility of Caribbean basin's complex mosaic, transformed and focused by the probing musical linguistics pioneered by the great saxophonists of modern jazz.”

Ramsey Ameen - 12/2005 TRIBES Magazine

“As for Sylvester, he’s one the most capable soloists holding an alto today”

“Sylvester's alto work is deeply rooted in bebop but fluent in the most modern of horn vocabularies. With this album, he makes his mark as one of the more advanced, imaginative voices in Afro-Caribbean jazz. David R. Adler - All Music Guide Review (Dec 20, 2008)”
