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".

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.

Manrico Seghi Trio - FOOD HOUSE

Manrico Seghi Trio - FOOD HOUSE - Next Friday in all digital stores!

The encounter between organist Manrico Seghi and "Drum Hero" Byron Landham marks the birth of this project, then completed by Davide Palladin's guitar. From the trio's love, for music of course but also for irony and for good cooking, comes the album "Food House", which goliardically recalls the famous West Montgomery tune "Full House". Among the full "Organ Trio" mood, spacing from the sounds of West Montgomery himself, to those of Larry Young, Herbie Hancock, Duke Person and many other giants, we also discover the original "Dai dai". Eight tracks between swing and blues focusing on groove and irony, which become highlight and leading elements.
