... Jose Carlos takes advantage very well of the stage to tell the world what he thinks, feels; he believes himself what he is singing and ends up projecting that to the public, thus giving his interpretations an important quality: credibility ... Free is the best adjective that defines it, since for him it's not important the musical genre with which he should fuse his lyrics, as long as it portrays what he means.”
