“Sosa is one of the truly illuminated minds of world jazz.”
Phillip Van Vleck, Billboard
“Sosa’s music explores African culture with a global perspective. In his pan-African/pan-Latin approach, Orisha music, hip-hop, rumba, jazz, and Gwana ritual music are just different expressions of the same culture.”
Fernando Gonzalez, DownBeat
“Sosa’s pianisms evoke distant echoes of McCoy Tyner’s power, Keith Jarrett’s improvisational flights of fancy, and Thelonious Monk’s angular harmonies transforming the piano into 88 well-tuned drums.”
Eugene Holley, The Village Voice
