Primitive Atom
Azzurra Giorgi - voice
Clelia Patrono - guitar and programming
Giacomo Ferrera - bass
Claudio Cicchetti - drums
Special guest: FABRIZIO BOSSO - trumpet

The signature is French, the lyrics speak English and the line-up is Roman: yes, eclecticism is not lacking in this band, which does not hide its traces even in the eleven episodes that make up their first work, 'Three years three days '(Urban49 label; Halidon distribution).

The title is a double reference to the gestation phase and to the record recording times in the studio; in the words of the singer Azzurra Giorgi - a white-hot voice - "three years find their synthesis in three days". We move in a musical territory that tends to be alternative, but with the right amount of electronics: the result is a warm and enveloping mixture. Fabrizio Papitto

Pure Songs is a project born from the love for the communicative and emotional capacity of a melody, whether it comes from jazz or from the vast and varied patrimony of plays that each of us accumulates and preserves over the years. The music of Pure Songs is the source of inspiration for the writing of the lyrics, which are therefore closely linked to them, depend on them and are the fruit of them.

"Sudoku killer" (Music Zones), marks the recording debut as leader of the young Roman double bass player Caterina Palazzi, who has been establishing herself on the Italian and French jazz scene for some years. She is often indicated and appreciated as a new talent in the Italian music scene.
It comes out with an engaging and disturbing CD, dark atmospheres, harsh and sanguine sounds, noir references, literary as well as musical journeys, a record with which to read a text or put in front of a sheet, and so, write, annotate. A record that starts from jazz to contaminate itself with rock, avant and Mediterranean sounds.

On the occasion of the JAZZIT AWARD 2010 Caterina Palazzi was voted as the best Italian composer, as the fifth best Italian double bass player, her record SUDOKU KILLER was nominated second best Italian album and her group fourth best Italian formation. She also she on the TOP JAZZ 2010 she was reported among the best new talents.

Saint Louis Big Band
Special guest MARCELLO ROSA

The Saint Louis Big Band directed by Antonio Solimene is an orchestral formation that fully respects the classic structure of the big band, characterized by its energy and interpretative freshness. The formation, born in September 2007, was chosen by several big names in the jazz scene (including Javier Girotto) to interpret their songs. In this occasion we find her alongside a gentleman of Italian jazz, the trombonist Marcello Rosa, proposing in a modern key the original pieces composed by him in many years of honorable career.
