PRESSE ★★★ JAZZMAN 

"Ah, nostalgia, when you hold us! Georgi Kornazov knows about it and does not lie when he speaks of uprooting and homesickness. A mixture of bulgarian folklore, a modern jazz, a hybrid tradition recomposed a thousand times, Georgi knows how to extract the necessary elements. Kornazov composes with his memory (Spomen = Memories), with the songs and melodies of his childhood, and finds the right words. Never watery, or exceeding the laconic stage of evocation, less "stiff", less "concerned" as in the previous CD « STARO VREME », the imprint of fleeing Bulgaria is still more insistent, both in the writing and in the instrumental colors - marked by the presence of Krassen Lutzkanov on Kaval."
