“Lest anyone fear that big band is an outdated jazz form, they need only to look towards this astonishing ensemble and its leader.”

                                                                                            THE NEW YORK CITY JAZZ RECORD

“…only someone who is truly talented can create music with such power and beauty. Ms. González is more than just a talented musician. She is, quite simply, a rarity—a woman of astonishing substance.”

                                                                                            LATIN JAZZ NETWORK

“…Florencia’s charts have an air you may call Third-Stream, you may call world music. I’ d call it worth hearing.”

                                                                                            JAZZ INSIDE

“…Woman Dreaming is in most respects a showcase for Gonzalez’ ultra-modern compositions and arrangements, and she doesn’t disappoint. As another flag-bearer in the ranks of such avant-garde writers as Schneider Carla Bley, Hazel Leach, Christina Fuchs and others, Gonzalez has made the sort of remarkable beginning that presages a bright and productive future. ”

                                                                                            ALL ABOUT JAZZ

“…Florencia Gonzalez seems to impress everyone with whom she comes in contract.”

“Woman Dreaming of escape showcases her excellent writing and arranging..”

“…Gonzalez has crafted a program of long-form works that are packed generously with arranging delights and happy surprises.”

                                                                                            JAZZIZ

“…tracks driven by Latin dance rhythms (tango, candombe, etc) but stretched into modern realms of harmony, rhythm and form that recall the best of Mingus, Monk and Gil Evans…”

“…an array of colors (…) as she marries modern jazz harmony and the occasional 12 tonish classical master to the deepest folkloric traditions of the south of South America.”

                                                                                            THE BOSTON PHOENIX

“ La actuacion de Florencia Gonzalez Big Band fue nuevamente uno de los numeros mas interesantes y disfrutables, con el justo balance entre academia y esquina, entre el norte y el sur, entre el pasado y el futuro de la musica”

(“Florencia Gonzalez Big Band performance was again one of the most interesting and enjoyable acts, with the right balance between school and street, between north and south, between the past and  future of music. ”)

                                                                                            LA DIARIA

“ Mujer soñando con la evasion” refleja una sensibilidad ancha y globalizada, donde dialogan calle y academia, partitura e improvisacion, potencia orquestal y sutiles melodias solitarias…”

(“Woman Dreaming of escape reflects a wide and globalized sensibility, where there is a conversation happening between the studied and the street wise, the written note and the improvised, orchestral force and a singe subtle melody”)
