"Jazz Times Review"

Passing Place demonstrates Moretti's
stylistic versatility. Moretti shows a command of the post-Coltrane straightahead swing and a feel for quiet introspection with exciting rock and funk. The group's execution is first class.
David Franklin - Jazz Times

"Passing Place"

Well!!!.....Let's talk about some serious bebop horn lines & avante-garde that works. The combined group puts forth a certain virtuosity which is breathtalking. Moretti's improvised horn lines are technically superb.
