"Listening with a critical ear, this is a GREAT SMOOTH JAZZ CD from start to finish."
David White - WHITESTER RADIO-SMOOTH JAZZ - USA
"Now his new smooth jazz album is here, and it is one that can count. You can immerse yourself in eleven original compositions, which bring you in a Mediterranean climate, with influences from Brazil, the Caribbean and from funk. The music sounds fresh and aroused and lets the brio of Fabio well ring through... Nicely and professionally sounding music, which will put you dreaming this way, too!"

Fabio Mignola is a truly versatile guitarist. His instrument conveys the smallest nuances of the artist’s emotions. Fabio Mignola delights by his virtuoso style of guitar playing. One can compare his “Take Me Higher” album with the works of the famous Acoustic Alchemy. But this album is individual in the right way and the artist’s performing is very expressive. One might want to mention the rich and refined sound of “Take Me Higher”. It is perfect from the first note to the last seconds. It undoubtedly will bring the listeners about an hour of pure enjoyment and relaxation. What one can say else? “Take Me Higher” is a bright work of a talented guitarist. We must remember his name and wait for the new releases of Fabio Mignola who is actually a rising star on the contemporary instrumental and smooth jazz music scene.
