““This song and melody were born in Roberto's heart. It is a powerful song of love which we feel within his fine playing. A very moving performance and I love it." ”
— Danny Thompson (double bass titan and music legend)
"A charming genius! One of my all time favourite performers." (Martin Stephenson - One of Britains best songwriters and Indie legend).
“An extraordinary talent! A fantastic sense of humour, a great, great player and a great performer”. (Frank Hennessy - BBC Wales).
“Double bassist and arch humorist Roberto Cassani, aside from being spectacularly funny on stage and a fine musician, here delivers a honest ode to life and love. Bravely personal and at times quite affecting” (Paul Kerr - Blabber n Smoke).
“The genius of Cassani’s music is to use slick, absurdist humour to subvert expectations, hook the listener and then deliver his knock out blow by revealing the important issues he raises”. (Cameron Arndt - Rock and Roll Traffic -reviewing the performance piece “Protest Panda”).
“If he wasn’t amongst us already, somebody would have to invent Roberto Cassani, he’s such a blast of fresh air in a , self-regarding world.” (John Davy - Music News).
“An album that lifts the spirits and makes the world seem a better place” (Bluesbunny Music Reviews about “Oh!...L’amore!”).
“A true emerging star with side-splitting humour and clever lyrics which will see him firmly in place as a national icon” (Alan Wilson - The Courier).
“Wry humour, life affirming lyrics – and all in a second language! Italian born musician and songwriter, Roberto Cassani’s humorous songs are pitch perfect in their razor-sharp observations of daily life” (BBC Radio Scotland's Comedy Cafe).
"Roberto is like the best street musician...Something of the clown, the seriousness covered over with humour..."
"The last wandering troubadour, enlivening all of our lives a little for a few songs".
"He's genuinely an enigma, I've never heard anyone else like him. I don't even know who or how to compare him. It's best just to give in. He'll get you in the end. Songs are about capturing the stories of the common people to retell down the ages. Well that's what we've got here. It's true to life, funny and says something different about Britain today!"
(Mark Coyle reviewing Roberto’s first album in 2007, now out of print and sold out)
"Scotland's favourite Italian! Absolutely wonderful and delightfully entertaining. Cassani Rocks!!" (Rob Ellen - Medicine Music)
