“Luciano knocked everyone out with his musicality. When he plays, there's a mix of passion, energy, talent, charm and humour. When rereading the songs of his idols, he doesn't forget to also imprint his own fingerprint on these performances. Seeing him live is impressive, he plays easily and knows how to charm the audience”​ — Fred Karsten, jazz broadcaster, producer and critic, after watching Luciano Leães live at Maple Leaf in New Orleans.
