Monday mood  reviewed by Felix Amador @ Jazz, ese ruido 

En la misma línea de su anterior Sea Ahead (Free Code, 2016), el contrabajista y compositor gallego Alfonso Calvo nos trae una nueva colección de temas originales con un sonido calmado, limpio, muy cool y placentero de escuchar, seis enormes composiciones con las que Calvo sorprende y, al mismo tiempo, consigue que suenen familiares al oído del aficionado (...) Los arreglos de Calvo me traen a la mente las aportaciones de Gil Evans al jazz de Miles Davis, por sus arreglos brillantes, que buscan una pureza dentro de la complejidad de empastar la diferente tímbrica de todos los instrumentos. Félix Amador, Jazz, ese ruido. https://jazzeseruido.blogspot.com/2020/01/un-septeto-atemporal.html?fbclid=IwAR1BryM3izmE-2v-NqImZJqtJ8_u6cCD7AAw4GsGE75AkQY_jJybbPtgQKs

Sea Ahead stands on its own merits, it is cerebral, offers polished improvisations, and has the essential sense of swing required (...) The Alfonso Calvo Septet is an extension of Calvo, an introspective musician, on a mission. A native of Santiago de Compostela, he is well prepared with an extensive educational background, and has assimilated the intricacies of complex jazz composition, while steadily building a reputation as a first call bassist. James Nadal, All about jazz.
