John Giordano's comments about José Manuel's work

Original text: "It was a great collaboration. Furthermore It was a long distance, so good communication was crucial, I would say that both me and Jose managed to handle all that with up most professionality and were extremely content with the final product. What I wanted to achieve with Jose was something special. In order to arrive to that stage, we both knew we had to work on it for a long period of time. Jose demonstrated incredible skills throughout the whole process coping with my crazy mind and translating what I wanted into music." ~John Giordano, Filmmaker, UK

"This guy is damn good!!! Jose Manuel congratulations!", ~Godwin Borg, Kronos Records, Malta
"La música de José Manuel amplía una gama de melancolía amor y espiritualidad al oyente. Tiene una amplia gama de variaciones y estilos que lo hacen único e inigualable a su ejecución. Para mi, como estudiante, es un modelo a seguir como ya lo dije y espero algún día tener el privilegio de tocar a su lado o aunque sea conocerlo y decirle que es lo mejor que conocí musicalmente", ~Micaela Bonetto, Piano Student, Argentina
