Marziani, Napolitano e Del pezzo, Jazz from Naples

Cose Sonore (Alman Music) presents the first project from the trio of Francesco Marziani (piano), Antonio Napolitano (double-bass) and Massimo Del Pezzo (drum). The three Neapolitan musicians, life- and music companions since their early youth, showcase a language that, even if rooted in the afro-american tradition, constantly seeks for contamination through the musical and cultural background of the Parthenopean territory. To Naples itself and to the figure of Troisi in specific the trio dedicates this first album, born from the shared urgency of giving artistic shape to a stream of ideas developed through the years. An album that wishes to be the forerunner of a project that puts sound and spontaneous expression in the first place, marked by improvisation and the choice of relying on analog tape recording technique. Eight tracks among which, alongside great compositions by Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Fats Waller and others great figures, three original Marziani numbers find place: "Little Child", "Young Pretty Lady" and, of course, "Troisi".

QVINTESSENCE - GHOSTS

Ghosts and rats haunt “Ghosts”, the debut single by Qvintessence, by which the Bolognese rock band wants to exorcise the "skeletons in the closet" and the "ghosts" that we carry inside.

They speak of infamous people, those who have marked us through small gestures and have obtained a place of dishonor in our soul.

Rock music through its communicative energy becomes a vehicle and catharsis of the most intimate essence of the band, which has its musical roots in the Seattle grunge of the early 90s.

The videoclip, out next 20th March, has the signature of director Simone Casadio Pirazzoli who, after directing the video of “Our new world” by Dream Theater, returns to deal with distorted guitars and heavy drums.

Everything were shot at the Ex Psychiatric Hospital of the Osservanza hospital in Imola, a place that brings to mind one of the darkest pages of our recent history, but makes a fundamental contribution to the video clip, underlining the anxieties that the song tells. .

“Ghosts” comes out on DeepOut Records and anticipates the homonymous album Qvintessence, which will be available from the end of May on CD, vinyl and on all digital platforms.

 

ROARING CHRISTMAS by Tiger Dixie Band & Greta Marcolongo

ROARING CHRISTMAS - Available on CD or in all digital store.

The Tiger Dixie Band lead us into the year's most awaited night, with the jolly energy of primeval jazz and the grace of the New Orleans sound, through an artistic project that fully captures the Christmas spirit. Properly dedicated to the "Roarin' Age" and graced by the featuring of vocalist Greta Marcolongo, the album features a blend between some of the most evoking classics of the traditional Christmas repertoire -rearranged for this project- with a few less-known "rare gems" uncovered in ancient recordings. The sixteen tracks of the playlist also showcase original tunes composed by the band members, starting off with the first track "Singin' by the Christmas tree".
 
 
The Tiger Dixie Band is particularly involved in rediscovering jazz of the so-called Roarin' Age, with an original and up-to-date approach. Typical nuances of the New Orleans and Chicago style, of Charleston and Ragtime, are philologically proposed both in style and spirit (also thanks to the use of original instruments of the time), but the sound anyway flows through the modern musical experiences of the single Band members, which melt together in execution, arrangement and improvisation, avoiding by this a mere "revival" effect and celebrating viceversa the statement that this musical genre hasn't aged, just like Swing or Bebop.
 
The album features Paolo Trettel (trumpet), Stefano Menato (clarinet), Fiorenzo Zeni (tenor saxophone), Luigi Grata (trombone), Andrea Boschetti (banjo, guitars and ukulele), Stefano Caniato (piano), Giorgio Beberi (bass saxophone), Daniele Patton (drums). With special guest vocalist Greta Marcolongo.

NICOLE MAGOLIE meets NO-LOUNGE - Red Moonlight

Nicole Magolie meets NO-LOUNGE | From Friday 4th June RED MOONLIGHT in all digital stores!

Eight years ago No-Lounge released the album "NAPOLI" destined to become a "cult" in Nu-Jazz / Lounge-Music. Even the South African performer Nicole Magolie was bewitched by the sounds of the great melodies of the Neapolitan Song through the arrangements of this album.

“I perfectly remember that evening in Naples when I listened to the No-Lounge version of Luna Rossa for the first time: what a wonderful alchemy.  Stunned, I found myself spontaneously singing the same refrain in English.  I was in the company of some friends and among them my inseparable artistique partner Gabriele Gentile who immediately picked up the phone and asked me to repeat once more to record a vocal note.  I don't know exactly which route it took when  he made that recording, but it ended up being listened to by No-Lounge and Alman Music too and I magically found myself shortly after in Imola to record their version of “Red Moonlight”… Thanks!”
