“Alexis Cuadrado is carving a place for his exceptional bass playing and his most impressive composing abilities. ‘Noneto Iberico’ is a successful brilliant endeavor embracing the complexities of Spanish Flamenco rhythms while embedding contemporary American jazz improvisations and harmonies. Alexis’ unique compositions are passionate with tons of clarity throughout! ‘Noneto Iberico’ is going to demand repeated listening! BRAVO!” – Rufus Reid – Bassist/Composer

“Listen to Cuadrado’s compositions and you’ll find every reason to take him seriously.”
– Josh Jackson, NPR Music

"The rich melody lines, the handsome harmonies, the subtle rhythmic changes, the excellent solo work and ensemble parts and the joyous attitude of the music all make ‘Noneto Ibérico’ worth your investigation." – Richard Kamins, Step Tempest

“Alexis Cuadrado is a bassist/composer/band leader after my own heart. With Noneto Iberico he's going for something personal, accessing folk music of his native country and continuing to add to and expand the definition of the word ‘jazz’. I'm a fan.” – Ben Allison – Bassist/Composer

“Dexterously melding sophisticated harmonies with the Spanish rhythms . . . Cuadrado’s orchestrations wove a multi-hued tapestry. . .” – Russ Musto, All About Jazz New York
(on the premiere of Noneto Iberico at The Jazz Gallery, October 2009)
