Downbeat Magazine
“Cortiñas’ music is uplifting, robust, melodic, and gets your body moving; it’s an exciting blend of the artist’s musical influences from jazz and Latin America, including his native Mexico”

Here are three of the Ensemble’s official videos:

Dialectics of Freedom (studio)

Ubermensch (live at the Jazz Showcase)

Arete (live at the jazz showcase)

Modern Drummer Magazine
“An emerging drummer to watch. Cortiñas is a highly musical and grooving drummer, as well as a laudable composer… his music is surprisingly danceable…groove-shifter, high-energy precision soloing, framed by vivid ideas. A joyful meeting of mind and spirit.”

Chicago Jazz Magazine
“With the cohesive and captivating Esse, Cortiñas has created superb work that balances refreshingly inventive ideas with high-caliber musicianship. This exquisite and continuously gripping record is a testament to Cortiñas’ triple threat of skills as dynamic performer, agile bandleader and brilliant composer.”

All about Jazz
“A fascinating musical realization, exploration, and distillation of the works of Hegel, Aristotle, Descartes, Plato, and other brilliant minds…statements that are both studious and thought-provoking in nature…Gustavo Cortinas has worked everything out in his musical neck of the woods.”
