As discreet as he is talented, Flavio Boltro has established himself as one of the most influential soloists on the European scene. With exceptional technique and great mastery of harmony, he proves to be as expressive as a leader as he is as a luxury sideman. A gifted prompter, a brilliant and talkative musician, he delivers original compositions in a quartet for always energetic music, rich in multiple influences. His quartet plays well-performing mainstream jazz, which demonstrates exceptional cohesion and energy throughout its tours.

During an interview with “Down Beat” in November 1998, Wynton Marsalis named Flavio Boltro as one of the best trumpeters on the world jazz scene along with John Faddis, Terence Blanchard, Wallace Roney, Nicholas Payton, Marcus Printup, Roy Hargrove, Russell Gunn, Ryan Kisor, Tomonao Hara, Tom Harrell, Wendell Brunious and Leroy Jones.
