Press:


"It was the first time I’d heard Manzin live, and his modesty belies the searing lines he plays, easily a match for Brecker or Bergonzi." -Sarah Chaplin, Jazzwise


"...He (Manzin) has to be heard to be believed!" -Jon Newey, Jazzwise


"Roberto Manzin’s licks are up to the minute" -Evening Standard


"Sax-player Roberto Manzin's solos have something of the chromatic excitement of Brecker and the soulfulness of Sanborn." -Alison Bentley, LondonJazz


"Scorching Italian tenorist Roberto Manzin" -Time Out


"An expressive player with an attractive sound, his improvisations reveal a skilful strategist, a melodist first and foremost, who gradually unfolds a solo and builds up to a compelling conclusion." -Charles Alexander, Jazzwise


"With his background of playing in a multitude of musical styles, and his outstanding technique and superb voice, Manzin not only fits the [Nicolas] Meier Group to perfection, but moreover got into the music as if he'd played it all his life. I cannot think of any other clarinet/sax player who could fulfil this role within the Meier Group with more authenticity, authority and sheer excellence than Manzin"

"Woodwind virtuoso Roberto Manzin, one of the finest and most versatile saxophonists on the British scene" -Rainlore's World of Music


"Reed-player Manzin has a prodigious technique that he utilises effectively on tenor, soprano and clarinet. On the non-original - Mingus' Duke Ellington Sound [of Love]- the tenor is full and round with an almost Websterian sensuousness and guitar and tenor combine well in the ensembles. And how about that clarinet on Missing Home? About time we had some new liquorice and this is very tasty liquorice indeed!" -Bebop spoken here
