Rosario Giuliani – sax
Fabrizio Bosso - trumpet
Alberto Gurrisi – hammond
Marco Valeri - drums

Two excellent Italian musicians, Fabrizio Bosso on trumpet and Rosario Giuliani on sax, lead the quartet completed by Alberto Gurrisi on organ and Marco Valeri on drums, performing in a repertoire of great interest, both of standard and original compositions, with strong rhythmic connotations. An emotional journey that arises from the human and musical encounter, which has now lasted for more than twenty years, of two great interpreters of Italian jazz, masterfully supported by Gurrisi and Valeri, who are also considered to be champions in the national jazz scene.

AUGUST 21 – Double concert

9:00 pm

Danilo Rea - piano
Paolo Damiani - double bass

Damiani and Rea have been playing together for over 30 years in different formations. Damiani's CD "Al tempo che farà" (2007) winner of 3 referendums as the best album of the year sees Rea at the piano. In this new project the meeting between the two takes place on the level of melody and an artistic collaboration that over time has turned into a deep friendship. The repertoire includes original compositions by the two artists and well-known songs of different origins punctually betrayed. Tradition and betrayal chase each other, betrayal is in this case the highest possible proof of love for a heritage that others preserve with philologically perfect interpretations or massacre with operations of dubious taste. Here, on the contrary, the trends refer to paths that refer to an idea of multiplicity as Italo Calvino describes it in the American Lessons: what matters in a story is not its closing in on a harmonious figure but it is the centrifugal force that emanates from the story, the plurality of languages as a guarantee of a non-partial truth.

10:00 pm

Fabio Zeppetella - guitar
Roberto Tarenzi - piano
Jacopo Ferrazza - double bass
Fabrizio Sferra - drums

Handmade is an emotion that takes us directly into the soul of the author with 9 tracks (except the 8 of the great John Coltrane) all composed "by hand" by Zeppetella whose new project finds him the leader of a quartet of jazz musicians of international level: Roberto Tarenzi on piano, Jacopo Ferrazza on bass and Fabrizio Sferra on drums. The originality of the sound that emanates from Fabio Zeppetella's fingers in this latest project seems created by the artist and chiseled in his image. Equipped with an impeccable technique and great musical sensitivity, it makes use of a unique and personal language, the result of a study always devoted to the search for a style that over the years has made its own. He arrived at the elaboration of a completely original sound passing from the tradition and music of masters such as Charlie Cristian and Wes Montgomery to the evocation of the be-bop and hard-bop of the sixties. In his phrasing we discover the dominant aspects of a language that is never obvious, sometimes virtuous, sometimes sweet but always essential. Its dominant characteristics are constituted by the sweetness and strength inherent in the original way of interpreting music, in which the desire to seek a virtual link with poetry is evident.
