PRESS QUOTES
"... Virgo is full of incredibly sensuous sounds, constantly challenging the intellect." (Arnaldo Desoutero, Jazz Station)

"It's lovingly crafted, with an undeniably laid-back charm, and a blend has been achieved - but at the expense of legroom for the soloists." (Ray Comiskey, The Irish Times)

"Latin-swing, torchlight jazz and blissful bebop are some of the sensations that bassist/composer Nicolas Thys awakens with his quintet on his latest release Virgo from Pirouet Records ... The esthetics in the group's harmonies feel warm and buttery making for an album designed to please the listener's spirit." (Susan Francis, Jazztimes)

"Thys writes some effective music. Much of it has a placid air, quiet in its disposition, with an underpinning of the rhapsodic. Making it all the more potent is the band that Thys assembled specially for this recording. Their empathy and interplay are factors that elevate the music, adding to the punch with ideas that come in unexpectedly." (Jerry D'Souza, All About Jazz)
