Petra Magoni and Ferruccio Spinetti are two Italian artists who master the art of stripping the musical works, known or unknown, classical, jazz, pop or soul, only retaining their very essence. Shaded jazz timber and sophisticated double bass for a musical nudity. As their name implies, the bare tunes review a story of music torn between Ne me quitte pas, Nature Boy, Caruso and I Will Survive. Rock folly momentums spice the surprising devilish and sensual interpretation up.
Dreisam is the encounter of three artists from different countries: France, Brazil and Germany, letting us discovering how rich is that blend. Dreisam is a talented and inventive cosmopolitan band with a colourful smooth sound in a spicy world. Perfect triangle, nothing is geometrical, everything is in the rhythm. Camille Thouvenot’s lyrical and wrapping piano, Nora Kamm’s sweet and charming saxophone, Zaza Desiderio’s imaginative and harmonic drums create a boarding for travels, a succession of images and landscapes, impeccable themes. A trickling seamless music.
Trio Barolo is the encounter of three strong musical characters: Philippe Euvrard makes his double bass sing with a great musicality; Rémy Poulakis not only is a master of the accordion but also an amazing tenor; Francesco Castellani makes you hear the most sumptuous sounds of the trombone. Their set Casa Nostraexpresses the traveller’s soul, talks about simple and deeply human things. Their music could arise from a fresh place in Palermo, from a little port in Marseilles or a street corner in Algiers. Accompanied on stage by Antony Gatta at the percussion, Carjet Gerretsen at the clarinet and of the choir of the Crest Jazz Voal trainees, they take us on a musical cruise, a dream made of pictures from Fellini or Visconti movies.
Lorenzo Naccarato Trio develops the concept of cinematic jazz: the movement is at the heart of their musical exploration. Their work brims with lyricism, energy and invention. What makes the trio special is Lorenzo’s and his accomplices’ imagination, which brings the music to an orchestral sound, beyond the classical accompanied soloist. Lorenzo Naccarato is passionate and enthusiast about life, about time and space, observation, stars and cosmos, about what simply beautiful… Rooted in the Italian culture and tradition full of lectures, colours and sounds, he chose the groundwork of his trio as only one slab. Rhythms, melodic lines, breaks, it all forms one thing diving you into a stimulating listening.
