“The Marc Rossi Group’s Mantra Revealed is a bridge between the exotic and the sublime. This music is intercultural, wonderfully inventive and dynamic.” – Walter Kolosky, renown jazz critic and author
“Rossi is a visionary…..” – Criticaljazz.com
“…Very nice indeed, not only the time signatures, but the modulations..”
– John McLaughlin, guitar legend and Grammy winner.
“Marc Rossi is the hip guru of Indian-jazz fusion.”
– Richard Stoltzman, Grammy-winning clarinet soloist
“On Hidden Mandala, Rossi’s songs capture the rich possibilities of classical Indian music, but still stay true to their jazz roots….at once giving the song a gutsy rootedness and the harmonic freedom to float out of western conventions. …as the improvisations speak to limitless possibilities.” –Jay Deshpande, AllAboutjazz.com
