Tito García González is an exceptional musician, who has a simply incredible level and a very interesting and original work.
Chucho Valdés (2021)
I have listened Retro-Garde with pleasure and admiration.
It is the manifestation of a great pianist who, at the same time, is an integral musician: imaginative, sincere, original and who has decided to be “free”, with all that that implies.
José Luis García del Busto, music critic and Academician of the San Fernando Royal Academy of Fine Arts (2020)
