"The pianist keeps a connection to jazz improvisation throughout the album, but never leaves the realms of commercial accessibility. . . [Battistini's album] Hands In Motion displays a broad commercial appeal that balances Latin Jazz and smooth jazz; for easy listeners in the Latin Jazz world, this release should be a goldmine"

- Chip Boaz, Latin Jazz Corner (2009) 

"In a time where there are those who are trying to cling to what works, there are those who continue to reach for the stars! Keyboardist, songwriter, producer, arranger is doing just that. He sticks to his guns. He's not one of these artists that puts out music for the sake of selling records, but for his passion, dedication, and respect for the art (especially Latin Music) and of course, Latin Jazz. "
