Noteworthy Press and critiques: "...Jacovella proves to be a refined pianist and author, who loves chiaroscuro and soft-spoken dialogue..." (Musica Jazz); "The jump, a piece composed by the roman pianist for Tony Scott's clarinette: the anguished, tremendously evocative voice of the "Holy man" from New Jersey and his painful scat are enough to give you the shivers!"; " Jacovella's is, without doubt, a cultural background that is sinking its roots in Europe." ,"A performance in a Keith Jarrett style of perfect solitude.."(, ".. L.J.'s piano often pays homage to the great lesson of Art Tatum." (K.Kralj-Il Piccolo, Trieste); "The Heart of Europe: a suggestive work with an intimate pace..." (Jazzit)
