Italian multi-reed ace Alberto Pinton takes his art rather seriously. Time and time again he produces some of the more stimulating jazz to be heard.
- Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz
All told, the Alberto Pinton Quintet personifies the excitement that jazz represents, along with a deep feeling for what lies close to our hearts.
- Jim Santella, Cadence Magazine
With Motionemotion, Pinton and his peers deliver a document that plays upon Pinton's well crafted ideals mixed with a restlessness that takes advantage of his ensemble's rich talents.
- Jay Collins, One Final Note
Here is music that proudly proclaims its debt to tradition, aims for urgency and authenticity rather than fizz and thrills, welcomes fugitive tonalities and formal experimentation, and refuses to make any aesthetic compromise in order to have all that it wants.
- Joe Milazzo, Bagatellen
Pinton is a creative improviser on all reeds, and his writing approach allows him to be expressive on each of them.
- Frank Rubolino, Cadence Magazine
Pinton's versatility never seems to cloud his judgment.
- Hugh Gregory, Jazz Review UK
Playing with the facility of a tenor saxophonist, Pinton manipulates his baritone to produce smooth multiphonic cadenzas.
- Ken Waxman, Jazz Weekly
Pinton is for real, and I’d be happy to see his work published by serious labels and diffused in the right circles. It’s that good.
- Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes
