Casagrande's electric playing has an almost speech-like directness, a warm, asculine voice that enunciates the melody line with relaxed precision. In the same way, the acoustic playing has a springy, sometimes gently percussive quality and a command of overtones that only sensitive recording can reproduce. There are moments, especially when sitting through yet another average piano trio recording, when it’s tempting to think that jazz is in an ageing rut. Then along comes a record like Fast Forward and the music’s relevance and accessibility, its element of surprise and discovery, is restored."   (Brian Morton)
