KÓSMOS KÓSMOS

The trio composed by pianist Stefano Falcone, drummer Giuseppe D’Alessandro and bass player Ilaria Capalbo outlines an idea of music that is eloquent and purpose-driven, originating from the band’s cohesive sound and strong creative urgency. A fearless attitude to improvisation and extemporary practices together with grounded composition work make up for a bold sound that strikes as being equally fresh in approach and rooted in the idioms of jazz tradition and classical European music. The personalities of the band members, who have been collaborating in other projects for the last few years, are different yet complementary: Falcone’s intellectual, narrative piano playing is met by Capalbo’s expressive intensity and keen sense of melody while D’Alessandro’s chiseled, sensitive drumming brings to the foreground the propulsive force and rhythmic variety of this ensemble. The first recorded work of the trio is a concept album dedicated and inspired by the life and vision of jazz pianist Lennie Tristano, which includes elaborations and arrangements of some of his tunes as well as original compositions by all band members.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
