    Amazing player with the right touch for a lot of genres. Have had the pleasure to work with Xico numerous times, in Pop/Rock, Soul, Afro, you name it. He gets the right approuch. Either the laidback feel like Pino Palladino, or the Glued to the kick and click track. Recommend him and always easy to work with!

    Xico is remarkable musician, it's a breeze working with him. Look no further if you need a bassist who has got all the technical requirements you might need, and then some, but also, and perhaps more importantly, easy to communicate and hash out ideas with. He's done a superb job on my upcoming album, and I can't wait to work with him again.

    Xico Santos is a great musician. He has an incredible sense of style and in addition, he is very accurate. I love record with him, very professional.
