Album Description

Their music is a rich tonal palette of unusual colors that blend exceptionally well and tell and embody the true meaning of contemporary music. A sextet of "supermusicians", each one with a unique style and a strong personality that together rise to one of the most original band on the Italian jazz scene in recent years. They give rise to one of the most unique formations appeared on the Italian jazz scene in recent years. The project is a true masterpiece, thanks to a series of high-profile elements: the powerful and extraordinary compositional vein of the leader, Alessandro Carabelli, an amazing pianist of great value; Flavio Boltro considered by critics one of the leaders of the world's jazz trumpet and for years a member of the quintet of Michel Petrucciani; Tino Tracanna saxophonist by the talents out of the ordinary for years partner in the Paolo Fresu quintet; Luciano Zadro, nowadays in Italy, is probably one of the most original guitarist and modern; Marco Conti powerful and refined bassist; Maxx Furian prodigious drummer with incredible rhythmic qualities and one of the prefered drummers and most acclaimed in Europe. The sounds of the sextet are compact and synergistic, with chamber mode, but which also leave ample spaces of improvised expressiveness, always exploited by all the components skilled both in the lyricism solo that in rhythmic textures and harmonics. The songs are always in perfect balance between tradition and research, enjoyable and challenging for all tastes. The project is, without doubts, one of the most modern and powerful expressions that the current Italian jazz scene has to. A strength and a modernity that arise from the deep knowledge of the tradition and at, the same time, from the ability to interpret the musical challenges of the new millennium. At one time you can listen great musicians, not only for overt instrumental skills, but above all for their personal strong musical aesthetic.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
