Concert reviews:

Sunny sounds ...
... traditional and modern, elaborately composed and improvised... mutually inspiring elements. But above all, it is the sound that grooves. Jazz, Flamenco and Latin American styles unite to create a distinct sound. When the four music pros perform together, good vibes are assured. (Münchner Merkur)

CD Reviews:

"Musix"
Instrument euphony at its best. The music and compositions of the Corazón-Quartett are of the highest calibre. The dream-like and reverie pieces, delightfully floating between world music, flamenco, jazz, Latin and global sounds, seem superbly harmonious and light despite the complexity. There is an astonishing wealth of finesse and imagination in both rhythm and harmony. The Corazón-Quartett literally makes the sun rise in your heart with their sophisticated and artistic style...

"Akustik Gitarre"
The flamenco touch is profound and not confined to superficial rumbas, while especially the improvised solos contribute a jazzy component. The repertoire revolves around longing, passion and melancholy, in short: journeys into the Andalusian sun. Perfect to unwind and chill down with a nice drink. This holds true for the melodious and diversely arranged original compositions as well as to real classics by popular flamenco guitarists. Fast-paced guitar runs and laud to oriental flair, well-dosed guest contributions on vocals and wind instruments round it all off to a perfectly successful album.

"Rheinische Post"
The first striking feature when listening to this CD is its excellent sound. And that's a good thing, because the filigree compositions keep revealing new nuances to the audience, making listening an ever-renewing pleasure. The perfectly rhythmically coordinated arrangements are contrasted with improvisation elements, in which Lori Lorenzen demonstrates his extraordinary mastery of this art. Often, fine grooves determine the action and give rise to a music that serenely sways between relaxation and virtuosity.

"Hörerlebnis"
The musical recipe concocted of salsa, cumbia, son, merengue and bolero results in ravishing, often romantic Latin miniatures. And yet, it is a mature sound: the tracks are far more than a whiff of Copacabana beach sound. And the brilliant musicians make sure of that. They take their listeners by the hand and whisk them away into the world of Spanish, Cuban and Caribbean beats. And their way of doing this is extraordinary - both from a musical and sonic point of view.

"Hifi-Stars"
The listener immediately feels part of it - the guitar sounds are clearly afflicted with the typical southern nonchalance and dynamics. The blend of own pieces and titles by Paco de Lucia, Gerardo Nunez and Chicuelo is more than successful. Music to dream to, splendid in its straightforward recording. World-embracing and colourful guitar jazz with a great sense of tonality!
